What a season 2017/18 was, with promotion to the Premiership secured after an exciting season of 1st XV rugby that went down to the wire, an exhibition at Hampden celebrating our 160th season and victory against Heriot's in the BT Cup.

Although it seems hardly any time since the season ended, training is now back on, with pre-season fitness the order of the day. We have our first friendlies in August and our first Premier fixture has been confirmed as Ayr at home on 1 September. As 2018/19 is the last season of the current league structure, no Premiership team will face relegation. This should make for an interesting season, with clubs able to play expansive and entertaining rugby. Our squad are keen to make their mark, continue to build on their successes from last season and justify their place in the top flight of Scottish club rugby.

In order to support this on-field activity, it is essential that we have a growing and vibrant social membership. As well as providing much needed funds to support the ever increasing costs of running a rugby club, our social members give very welcome encouragement to the players and add considerably to the atmosphere at Raeburn Place.

Your support is very important to the club. In return, whichever category of membership you choose, you will be entitled to apply for International tickets, enter the Club Lottery and join Accies Shop Local, which provides discounts for our members. Following feedback from supporters, we have introduced two new membership categories this season, further details of which can be found below.

We hope you will consider becoming a member this season. Whether you are renewing, rejoining or joining for the first time, you are assured of a warm welcome at Raeburn Place.
