In what proved to be a hard game on Saturday afternoon, Arran’s senior rugby team were beaten by 23 points to nine by Loch Lomond RFC.
The Ormidale Park was once again packed with spectators as the crowds gathered to watch the island’s team possibly leap into the top spot.
A win on Saturday would have dislodged Loch Lomond from first place but instead Arran are now back in third position behind Uddingston.
But as team officials pointed out to The Banner after the game, Arran have now played all of the tough teams so the coming weeks should see more success for the island team.
This Saturday Arran have another big game, this time against last year’s main opponents Lanark RFC.
Both teams were promoted at the end of last season so Arran will be hoping for a win.
