A finger buffet was on offer to ball sponsor G &T Security and match sponsor Pickles Agriculture Ltd before the match but it was the cordon blue desert of the match which was the highlight of the day. A feast of eight tries, for the Maybole side, in a demolition of promotion hopefuls Stewartry.Read More

Carrick travelled to Loch Lomond or rather to Bonhill, Alexandria to take on the side named after the famous loch. Loch Lomond was a club formed from the amalgamation of Dumbarton RFC and Vale of Leven RFC .The match was played at the quaintly named Dillichip Park which sits on the banks of the River Leven. The pitch was wide and with the strong breeze drying out the underfoot conditions the conditions were ripe for a fast handling game.
Carrick and their big travelling support made their way up to Cambuslang knowing that this was likely to be a challenging game and so it proved to be with the result not decided until the final play of the match.
Carrick hosted Strathaven last Saturday at Maybole. Their players must have travelled with some trepidation as they were hammered by 136 points to 5 earlier in the season.
Carrick travelled to Dunblane, last Saturday to take on the difficult challenge of McLaren. With the Appeals Panel of the SRU overturning the points deduction imposed on Oban for a non fulfilment of a fixture. Carrick now find themselves out of the promotion spot and two points behind Oban.
Ten try blitz It would not have been a surprise this month if the old gentleman wandering around Maybole, dressed in middle eastern clothes, carrying planks of wood was called Noah.
It was raw and not braw and that was just the weather but that description could have easily applied to the game. It was a battle between the top two as Oban had dropped a place having had three points deduction for failing to fulfil a fixture in December.
Carrick returned to competitive rugby last Saturday having had no games since mid December. They were the visitors at Fintry through which the river Endrick flows. Strathendrick rugby is not having their best season and is struggling at the foot of West 2. They were demolished at Maybole at the start of the season but obviously, after Saturday’s performance, have regrouped.
