At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall,
However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free. To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic.
The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.
We value our content and our journalists, so to get full access to all your local news updated 7-days-a-week – PLUS an e-edition of the Arran Banner – subscribe today for as little as 48 pence per week.
Charlie’s Bar 8
Arran AFC 2
League Division 1
Arran AFC started the first game of the new year on the wrong foot after suffering a 8-2 defeat by Charlie’s Bar at Kilwinning Sports Club last weekend.
While the result was not the preferred outcome a spokesman for the club said: ‘Bad day at the office today, Charlie’s Bar were the much better team from start to finish and we wish them all the best for the season.’
Isle of Arran AFC remain fourth in the league table with 18 points, just one point behind Kilbirnie United. Killie Athletic are currently in the top spot with 24 points and Irvine CSC are in second place with 21 points.
The next fixture for Arran AFC will be tomorrow (Sunday) when they face league leaders Killie Athletic at St Josephs Academy, Kilmarnock with a kick off time of 2.30pm.
