Academicals v Merchistonians & 160th Anniversary After-Party


To mark the end of Accies' 160th season, we are holding an action-packed day of rugby and excitement on Saturday 9 June.

The day will kick off with a touch tournament between Accies, Merchistonians and Watsonians (time to be confirmed, but probably around 12:30/13:00), followed by the annual Academicals v Merchistonians match. Since this game was returned to the fixture list, the Academicals have been triumphant. We do not want that to change in this anniversary season but Merchistonians will be gunning for us.

The bar will be open from 12:00 and the kiddies' play area will be available on this great family day.

The culmination of the day will be Accies' 160th anniversary after-party at Raeburn Place - a chance for the rivalries on the pitch to be forgotten and for the spirit of rugby to be celebrated in style. More details about the party of the year to follow soon, but get the date in your diaries now.

Please email Jamie Spratt if you are an Academical and would like to play in the main match against Merchistonians.

Please email Stuart Paterson to register your interest to play for Accies in the touch tournament.
