Home sweet home
Ayr have their first match at Millbrae since April when they welcome Boroughmuir on Saturday in the BT Premiership. The game kicks off at 3pm, as does the 2nd XV's clash with their Boroughmuir counterparts, but please be aware that due to the Scottish Airshow, traffic in the surrounding area will be heavier than usual. So remember to leave extra time for your journey to Alloway! Read the match preview here.
Ayr Ladies raring to go
Ayr Ladies have been working hard all summer and they finally get their BT Women's National League Division 1 campaign underway on Sunday away to Watsonians. Their first home game is Sunday 20th September against Aberdeenshire Quines at 2pm, so make sure you're there to support them!
Millbrae men at the World Cup
Three former Ayr players have been named in Scotland's final squad for the Rugby World Cup. Prop Gordon Reid, centre Mark Bennett and stand-off Finn Russell will hopefully pull on the dark blue jersey over the coming weeks and everyone at Millbrae will be cheering them all. All RWC games will be screened live in the clubhouse and everyone is welcome!
PLAY RUGBY AT AYR RFC
Ayr has a long and proud tradition of rugby for all, young, old, male and female. Our men's first XV has nurtured the talents of four Scottish international players recently in Gordon Reid, Pat MacArthur, Mark Bennett and Finn Russell. We have a close connection with Glasgow Warriors, with Al Kellock, James Eddie and Dougie Hall, to name but a few, all having donned the pink and black shirt in the past few seasons, as well as our own players training with the Scotstoun side.
There is also a men's second XV and de facto third XV in the shape of Millbrae RFC. The youth section is thriving, with teams from P1s and P2s all the way up to under-18s, as well as girls under-15s and under-18s. The ladies' section is on the rise and currently plays in the BT Women's National League Division 1. Ayr Ladies' Megan Thomson, Lisa Croniken and Emily Irving have represented Scotland under-20s and Irving has one senior cap.
