This Sunday (6th) Ayr Rugby will swap kicking tee’s for cricket bats when they go toe-to-toe with Ayr Cricket Club on the oval at Cambusdoon. It marks the first-ever meeting of the two neighbours, celebrating the close bond the two have had over the years.

(Andy Pickles front and centre alongside son, Max, who lines up for the Ayr Rugby squad) Up for grabs, the inaugural ‘Pickles Cup’, named after former Ayr Rugby and Ayr Cricket legend Andy Pickles. The former Club president will be in attendance alongside family to present the trophy to the winning side. For Ayr Rugby, it’s a stab at a very different sport, but the squad is full of cricket hopefuls ready to upset the odds. The side will be led by Frazier Climo, a man who knows all too well how to find victory in adversity. The kilted kiwi will be joined by a raft of familiar faces from across the senior squads and staff. Best of luck to both sides in what promises to be a great afternoon! The 20/20 match gets underway at 13:00.
