We currently play out of Carrick Academy, which can be found on Kirkoswald Rd in Maybole and compete in the BT West League Division 1.
If you are interested in joining us for training you are more than welcome - whether looking for a game or just a bit of fitness, we train at Carrick Academy on Tuesday nights from 7.00 - 9.00pm. Please come to the changing rooms in the Community Wing, and bring along trainers as well as boots as we often train on the astro grass.
Carrick Academy 1st XV 0-19 Kelvinside Academy
The Academy 1st XV kicked off their season with a tough opener against last season's Scottish Plate Semi Finalists Kelvinside. The first 20mins of the game were too and fro with Carrick kicking away a lot of possession and Kelvinside running strong only for manful defence by Carrick keeping the score at 0-0.
Carrick defeated an under strength Helensburgh side last Saturday by 31 points to 22. This was a big boost to the confidence of the Maybole team as their visitors, from the league above, had despatched them in the Shield competition, last season.

We’d like to say a big thank you to all who have put hands in pockets over the past couple of months as we can now say that we are half way to achieving our target of raising £3000 to put towards kit costs for ALL PLAYERS for this coming season.
With Season 2013-14 being the clubs 35 year anniversary, preparations are well under way with regards pre-season training and the building of next seasons squad. Coaches Brown and McHarg have been working away behind the scenes to continue the development of the current squad both on and off the field.
