Ayr RFC Crowned BT Premier Champions!

19 April 2017

Massive congratulations to Ayr RFC on becoming BT Premier Champions 2016/17.  Up against Melrose the final score was 8-12 to Ayr crowning them the champions.

“A few light showers earlier in the day hadn't made the pitch too greasy, and the sun was out, but it was windy all afternoon, not that the weather put off the Ayr fans who had travelled down to cheer on their players.

Ayr celebrated a tough, dogged, hard-fought victory, but they also commiserated with their Melrose counterparts, knowing how difficult it is to make a play-off final as league leaders and be denied the title at home.
Ayr head coach Calum Forrester was almost speechless, but not quite. "I'm delighted. I just want to thank the players and coaches for their efforts. - Elena Hogarth.”  Read more:

It’s now time to look at the BT Cup Final, playing once again Ayr RFC v Melrose on Saturday 22nd April but this time it will be held at Murrayfield.  Kick off at 3.30pm.  

Good Luck Ayr RFC, can you win the double!
