It was almost two years ago to the day and on a similar perfect day for running rugby that Lenzie destroyed a very inexperienced young Carrick side. That year Lenzie was promoted to West 1 but Carrick’s young team recovered from that poor start and managed to finish a creditable fifth.Read More
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.
This week’s report has been provided by the courtesy of the Irvine match reporter, Dereck Murdoch. Both sides were not at full strength with five of the Irvine side who started last week’s fine win against Kilmarnock unavailable whereas only three of the Carrick side was unavailable.
Saturday 26th January
Carrick U17 17 – 10 Wellington U17
What a fantastic game of rugby!!! We were 10-0 down at HT but the boys believed in their abilities and scored 3 unanswered tries to win 17-10. Well Done!!!
St Columba’s called off the S3 game due to a frozen pitch this morning. The game was then moved to the school field here in Maybole, for them to cancel again due to them having players unavailable.
I can confirm the following fixtures have been arranged for Saturday.
Pitch inspections will take place tomorrow afternoon but the weather forecast is for it to rain tomorrow and for it to be slightly milder, so we are hopeful of some if not all games taking place.
It was great to be back out seeing nearly 60 boys out representing the school again on Saturday morning in what proved to be 3 very close matches against St Columba’s. We lost all 3 but we were within a score in all 3. As Mike Goodwin, former Head Teacher said to me on Saturday morning when Carrick used to play St Columba’s we did well to keep them to under 50 points. The boys were fantastic with all 3 matches played in the finest spirit with players from both schools demonstrating a high level of skill and team work.
An excellent and very successful weekend of firsts last week with Carrick minis debut is to be followed by yet another historic weekend with Carrick RFC fielding not 1, not 2 but 3 teams this weekend.
The 2s are playing GHA and 3s are playing Killie both at Rozelle park! History in the making! 21 years since we fielded 3 sides!
Meet at HQ at 1.30pm or at Rozelle for 2:00pm.

Any Burns aficionados who had been suffering last Saturday from an excess of usquabae, haggis, neeps and tatties and had decided to clear their heads by following Tam o Shanter’s trail from the Market Bar in auld Ayr’s toon centre to Souter Johnnie’s cottage might have had a few surprises en route.
