Ayr Rugby Football Club

The Team

 

We have a squad of 25 boys from a range of schools in Ayr and the surrounding area. The squad contains a mix of experience and we welcome new boys at any time during the season.

 

 

Training

 

Training is usually at Doonside playing fields at the following times:

 

Monday           16:30-18:00

Wednesday     18:00-19:30

 

 

Matches

 

Between September and December, we compete in the Barbarian Conference League on a Saturday morning and the Shogun Conference League on a Sunday afternoon. From January to June we arrange matches against some of the best sides in the country and compete in beach rugby and 7s tournaments.

 

Barbarian Conference fixtures and results can be found here:http://www.scottishrugby.org/fixtures-and-results?competition=144

 

Shogun Conference fixtures and results can be found here: http://www.scottishrugby.org/fixtures-and-results?competition=78

 

 

Team Selection

 

Our aim is to develop all the boys in the squad and provide game time against suitable opposition. At some fixtures the opposition will be strong, so we will select a reasonably experienced squad. We try to match our players against suitable opposition, especially those who are relatively new to the game.Only those attending training regularly will be eligible for selection.
