Ashbourne: The club continued its pre-season preparations by playing a friendly on Friday last against Mullingar. Ashbourne won comfortably and will continue with a training game against North Kildare this Tuesday night.
A game for the following weekend has yet to be arranged. Ashbourne 2nd XV drew 15-15 away to Ardee on Friday and they will play Edenderry at home in Ashbourne next Saturday at 8pm. Training for the adult teams is in full flow on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm and open to all newcomers. The club is looking to progress from Leinster League Division 1B and build on last season's semi-final appearance in the Provincial Towns Cup. The club is fielding at J1 and J2 and has entered a team in the McGee Cup as well. This is a Friday night competition and suits certain people's lifestyle. The club is also looking to build its 19s and 21s for this season, so if you are in this age group and want to join a progressive club, come out and meet us. Our Youths and Minis have started back, with a wide range of teams and development programmes geared towards developing all types of players. We added underage girls teams last season and they are back training on Wednesdays at 7pm - all new players welcome. Contact Scotty at 086-3795876 for more details about Youths, Minis and Girls rugby.
