ARRDOSSAN Accies minis and Micros put in a dazzling display under the blazing Autumn sun on Sunday.

Their guests were Irvine/Carrick RFC, Greenock RFC and Glasgow team Allan’s Glen RFC, all of whom embraced the wonderful weather and produced rugby to match it.

The Micros kick started their day with a victory against Irvine, followed by a draw with Allan Glen's Their mixed squad of P1-3 kids were then beaten by a more seasoned squad of Greenock players in their final game. The star of the day was new Accies ace Marc Summers, who ran the opposition ragged with his tireless bursts of speed.

P4 Blue notched up an early win against Allan Glen's followed by a draw with Carrick. Their third game against Greenock was their only loss of the day. Once again, they showed their coaches and parents just how much they’ve learned at training in the last few months, delivering one improved performance after another. Stars of the day were the imperious Manus Gallanach and his team mate Adam Blake who produced another superb all-round display.

P4 Black beat Allan’s Glen in their opener, scoring some great tries along the way. A tougher game and subsequent loss to Greenock followed, and then their afternoon was rounded off with a well-contested draw against Carrick. Another new player – Riley Anderson was nominated as star of the day thanks to his first-class attitude in attack and defence.

P5 took on Allan’s Glen in their opening match and were beaten by their opposition’s knack for getting around the defensive wall. A win against Irvine followed and finally a very close loss to Greenock in a game that was heading for a draw until the final few moments of the game. The stars of the day were the strong-tackling Harry Dixon and his powerful running team mate Donny Mackenzie, with both lads catching the eye of the spectators.

P6 played two longer matches, firstly against a very handy Allan’s Glen P6/7 combined team. The Accies were in excellent form and shocked their older opponents with their ferocious tackling and sharp running lines. Ultimately the game was lost by a single try, but not without a phenomenal effort from the stars of the day: tireless-tackler Calum Monaghan, razor-sharp runner Innes McNichol and the returning giant Zac Edmond. The stars along with all of their high-performing compadres then went on to beat the very powerful Greenock RFC thanks to a whole-hearted performance that buoyed the delighted parents on the side line.

P7 opened their account with dominant win over Irvine Carrick P6/7. Calum Davis was the star of the show, using his pace and power to pierce the defensive line along with his rugby brains to set up multiple tries for his outside backs. The second match against Greenock was much tighter, with the scores equal at half time. After the break the Accies stepped up a gear with star of the day Tom Monaghan picking off several of his trademark interception tries, helping his team run in a well-earned victory.
