ARDROSSAN Accies Minis and Micros stormed to success at Strathaven RFC on Saturday, after producing a dazzling display.

With blazing sunshine overhead and the pristine 4G pitch underfoot, the scene was set for some entertaining, running rugby.

The Micros (P1-3) split into two squads.

Accies Blue started their three games with a bang, notching up a comfortable win thanks to their clever use of the open spaces.

Games two and three were also won easily, to the delight of spectating parents and coaches. The star players were Logan Gallacher and Manus Gallanach, with both boys speedy, attacking play standing out on the day.

Accies Black played two longer games against the hosts, winning and losing one of each. Their defensive line sometimes lacked the necessary solidarity to hold back the wave of attackers, but all in all they produced a strong performance, typified by star player Cooper Young, whose running game was second to none.

P4 played some wonderful rugby, full of offloads and neat passes. At times, they left the opposition chasing shadows, with Max Walton the chief tormentor of Strathaven. His try count was metronomic and duly earned him star of the day. His fellow star was Logan Murray, a young man with an outrageous appetite for tough tackling and strong running. The 30-minute game resulted in a good win for the visiting Ardrossan outfit.

The P5 team raised their performance level up several notches, delighting the coaching staff.

The rucking/counter rucking was sublime, leading to several turnover balls that were exploited and transformed into tries. A comprehensive victory ensued, with star man Logan O’Moore providing another stellar performance – running onto passes, supporting his team mates and sniffing out tries. His co-star was the irrepressible Marcel Emmery - a one-man wrecking crew, with an uncanny ability to stop the opposition in their tracks thanks to his exemplary tackling technique.

P6/7 delighted coaches, parents and any neutrals at the ground with their finest performance to date. They romped to an early lead, thanks to their strong running lines and deft offloads out of the tackle.

Their defensive performance was also on song, as was their rucking game, which soon became overwhelming for their hosts. A convincing win for the Accies was chalked up thanks to the outstanding team effort. Singling out a star of the day was near impossible as every boy and girl gave 110%. However, Evie Taylor was simply outstanding in every facet of the game and drew praise from every corner of the ground. It was a noteworthy performance.
