Currie game rescheduled for 7th February
Ayr's postponed away game against Currie in the BT Premiership has been rearranged for Saturday 7th February at Malleny Park and will kick off at 3pm.
Ayr Ladies are in action this weekend, taking on Broughton at Millbrae, 2pm, so why not get along and support them!
Ayr Ladies 20 Cartha Ladies 5
After a fiery encounter between Ayr and their west coast rivals Cartha in the Sarah Beaney Cup earlier in the season, revenge was very much in the pink ladies' minds as they squared up again at Millbrae in the BT National Women's League Division 1, and that's exactly what they got as they achieved a rousing 20-5 victory. Well done to both sides on an excellent game of rugby!
The under-18s played their rearranged National Youth Cup quarter-final against Boroughmuir at Millbrae on Saturday and recorded a 23-0 win. Read the match report here.
To round off the weekend, the under-16s beat West of Scotland 36-10 in their last league match of the season. They finish third in the table.
Millbrae men in Six Nations squad
The Scotland Six Nations squad has been announced and Mark Bennett, Finn Russell and Gordon Reid have been included. Bennett has made a speedy recovery from an injury sustained during his second international appearance in the autumn. Russell and Reid have five caps each and will surely add to this tally. Read the full story here. Scotland's first match is on Saturday 7th February away to France and we wish Mark, Finn, Gordy and all the squad the best of luck!
West coast love match in Cup quarters
Ayr have drawn Glasgow Hawks away in the quarter-finals of the BT Cup, to be played on Saturday 14th February, St Valentine's Day. These two west coast rivals know each other all too well, so there will be no love lost on the pitch, although we're certain there will be nothing but good feeling between the two off it. The winner will play either Boroughmuir or Stirling County in the semi-finals.
Rosco at the double
Ross Curle has been voted player of the month for December, just as he was in November. The mercurial back ran away with 26% of the online poll after performances which combined flare and dependability.
Thousands raised for CLIC Sargent
August's Ladies' Lunch at Millbrae raised a tremendous £3762 for charity. The bi-annual festivities are organised by the club's social co-ordinator Eilidh Rankin who always puts a huge effort into not only planning a great day for the ladies but also supporting a good cause.
This time round, it's something close to all our hearts as the funds raised have been donated to CLIC Sargent, who support children, and their families, affected by cancer. 1st XV player Robbie Fergusson, pictured above with Eilidh and Maxine from CLIC Sargent, is currently undergoing treatment for Hodgkin Lymphoma, so donating to this cause was more than apt.
A huge thank you to everyone who attended Ladies' Day at the end of August and gave so generously.
