Accies v Co-Optimists, Thursday 27 December, ko 1.30pm

On Thursday, 27th December, we will be playing our traditional fixture against the Co-Optimists. The Co-Optimists, are Scotland’s oldest invitational rugby team and we expect them to come with a team loaded with good young players along with some 'old heads'.

Whatever, we know the style of rugby they traditionally play, so we should be in for a good open game.

Accies team will be mainly based on the younger players who have played for, or benched for the 1XV over the season, plus a couple of the elder statesmen who need a game before we play Heriots the first Saturday of the New Year.

The Accies team is - 15 Ruairidh Young; 14 Rory Watt, 13 Iain Berthinussen, 12 Nyle Godsmark, 11 Alex Blair; 10 Euan Bonner. 9 Jonny Adams; 1 Duncan McLeod, 2 Fraser Rawlinson, 3 Chris murray, 4 Greg Campbell, 5 Max Gordon; 6 Callum Reid, 7 Ryan Godsmark, 8 Tom Drennan.

Replacements 16 Michael Liness, 17 Jonny McSorley, 18 Rowan Seydak, 19 Cameron Simpson, 20 TBA.

The bar in the clubhouse will be open from 12.30pm and you can be assured of a warm welcome irrespective of what the weather is like outside. Soup and pies will be available and afterwards the annual auction, that previously filled the Accies Club House year after year.

Please note the date in your diary, it is a good opportunity to get out of the house after the excesses of the festive season - support the Club, take some fresh air and see some of Accies 1XV of the future and some ex-internatiolaists take the field - Thursday 27 December, kick off 1.30.

Do your bit - get down to Raeburn Place - support your Club - BE THERE - 1.30pm kick off.
