Gail Riding

The AU committee are pleased to confirm that Gail Riding has agreed to take on the role of Bar Supervisor at the Club.

Gail, who will be well known to many regulars, will have overall responsibility for most of the duties involved in running the Bar at Mayfield – including a significant involvement in the promotion of social events.

We are sure everyone at Mayfield wish her well in her new role.

TFI – Friday 22nd March

No TFI Friday this week or next due to competing events and exceptional circumstances. So don’t turn up, don’t pass go and don’t collect your FREE nibbles. Bar wont open.

Rugby. Last Saturday’s disappointment because the game v Kirkcaldy was called off due to a waterlogged pitch will be put aside so the lads can prepare for the game this Sat v Kelso RFC. Another BIG game. Titans have the same opposition and both games KO at 3pm. Please come and support the teams.

Saturday’s full Lunch club is the Premium lunch and look out for former Club and Country player Stewart Campbell who is the guest speaker.

We hope you have a great Rugby weekend.

Kirkcaldy Away: Saturday 16th March

This Sat 16th March 2019 we travel to Kirkcaldy for what can rightly be billed as the biggest game of the season…. so far! We need the points with games fast running out. If we show the determination and commitment as was shown against Musselburgh we will do well. KO is 3pm at Kirkcaldy. We would encourage as many supporters as possible to make the trip to Fife to cheer on our lads. C’mon boys you can do it! Best of luck to you all and to the coaching staff.

TFI – Friday 15th March

TFI Friday 15th March 2019 is also St. Patricks day TFI

Top of the morning to you all! Last week’s TFI Friday is but a mere (distant) memory due in large part to a busy Friday and Sat in the Ferry! I am told reliably it was great fun! This week the bar will open when the big hand says 34 and the wee hand is between 5-6. FREE nibbles will feature and prominently. Guess the wine competition might be replaced by guess the Guinness and where the Irish cheese came from. Special offer this weekend from chief Leprechaun Paddy MacNeebs canned Guinness is only £2 per can! Bejesus get it while you CAN..getit. Once its went its went!

Rugby. This Sat we travel to Kirkcaldy for what can rightly be billed as the biggest game of the season…. so far! We need the points with games fast running out. If we show the determination and commitment as was shown against Musselburgh we will do well. KO is 3pm at Kirkcaldy.

TFI – Friday 8th March

It is still March and the Club will be open at 5.33pm on Friday as we pursue perfection in viniculture and in the pairing of a perfect cheese. No Liebfraumilch, Blue Nun or Kraft cheese slices will be contemplated only quality offerings. The FREE nibbles will indeed be FREE but a personal offering to the TFI gods would be appreciated. Surprise us with your choice and generosity!

Rugby. We won last week against Musselburgh which was a great effort. Well done guys and If we can do that against Kirkcaldy, Kelso and Aberdeen that would do nicely. The Club in partnership with Dundee Morgan have been given the Tartan Touch for this year. Watch the website for details and get a mixed team organised to support this great innovation and keep you (and the family) fit this summer.

TFI – Friday 1st March

Well after a wee break, this week we see the return of TFI Friday falling this week on the 1st March. I think this maybe the morning you wake up and shout rabbits 3 times while turning your head around 360 deg. Good luck with that but please ask your Dr if its OK to do and please read my disclaimer…..its in the small print under T&C’s. There will be wine to guess in the world wide ever popular, “guess the wine competition” but it will be a Merlot from Chile….. sometimes is! The cheese usually a cheddar, will be from a Country or a region of our neighbouring country! Could be one of the last times we have French cheese of course!! OR….. Italian wine BTW…… (Stop it now ED) Oh there will also be FREE nibbles and the bar will open at 5.34pm. Allow a bit more time if you are travelling from Montrose.

Rugby. Back in league business this week with the visit of Musselburgh RFC who are quite a bit in front of us position wise 7th to our 12th place. It wouldn’t do our chances any harm if we won this one! (Always the master of the understatement. ED) The mighty Titans also host Musselburgh both games KO at 3pm. We have a full lunch club so the clubhouse will be bouncing after the game. Come along and join in the fun.

Hope you have a great Rugby weekend.
