The Arran Malt Festival of Rugby will be held today (Saturday) at the Ormidale Park in Brodick.

Organised by Arran Rugby Club, the day will feature a 15-a-side friendly match against Ardrossan Rugby Club along with youth and mini games and coaching held throughout the day.

There will also be hot food and a beer tent and lots of entertainment all starting at 11.30am.

The event is taking the place of the usual Arran Rugby Sevens which had to be cancelled this year, due to many teams still fulfilling league fixtures delayed by the severe winter weather. There will be no dance this year.
