160th Anniversary Boxing Day Fixture

Tuesday 26 December RP, 14:00

Join us this Boxing Day to celebrate 160 years since our first match with a festive and friendly fixture against Crusaders Rugby.

We will onnce again compete for the 1857 Cup, which was kindly donated by Murray & Currie, with a team selected from both current and former players. Our opponents are renowned for their champagne style and we look forward to another entertaining and enjoyable match.

This will be our second fixture against the Crusaders, who were formed to raise awareness of cancer among men, and we are delighted to help support their work. Please visit for more details on Crusaders Rugby, the work they do and remember to check yourself out.

If you are interested in playing in the match, or donating a prize to the post-match fundraising auction, please e-mail Matt Coupar.

The Boxing Day fixture is a great chance for us all to come together to celebrate our 160th anniversary. Please support this event - bring along family and friends to blow away the Christmas excesses and then indulge in a few more post-match.

We also hope to celebrate our memories of Raeburn Place on Boxing Day, so please bring along any memoribilia, photos, newspaper clippings, etc you may have to share with others, while we reminisce about days gone by and look ahead to the rest of the sesaon and the next 160 years of Accies.
