Peter Murchie has revealed the two latest players to join his Bulls roster, unveiling scrum-half pairing of club legend David Armstrong and Scottish-Qualified South African Aylan Schabort.   A man who needs no introduction to the Millbrae faithful, David Armstrong is a fan favorite at Ayr and has established himself as one of the top half backs in Scotland. He has enjoyed success for both Ayr RFC and Scotland Club XV over the past few years.

Armstrong is now fighting fight after his season was derailed through injury last year. Peter Murchie expressed delight with Armstrong opting to join the Bulls: “He is a hugely influential player that has a natural ability to read the game. He has been training hard and is looking really sharp at the moment. “We are extremely excited to see him back out on the pitch”.

Born a Scotsman in Perth 19 years ago, Schabort grew up in South Africa and joins from Currie Cup side S.W.D Eagles where he was captain. He was named the clubs’ back-line Player of the Year in 2018. Speaking of his latest signing, Peter Murchie said: “Aylan is a young talented Scottish qualified scrum-half. He has a strong kicking game and has a good physical edge that we like in a nine. “We think he will continue to grow and develop with us this season”.The pair are the 13th and 14th Ayrshire Bulls signings to be unveiled so far.
