Match Preview Prem 12: Accies v GHA

Saturday 14 December
1st XV v GHA, Raeburn Place, 14:00
Following our last minute reprieve at the hands of Musselburgh last week, this Saturday we take on GHA, who last week became the first team to beat league-leaders Marr this season. We will need to be on our mettle to overturn the result of of our last encounter, when GHA were triumphant, winning 31-20 at Braidholm.

Please note the change of venue - this game will now be played at Raeburn Place, not at New Field as originally scheduled. Access to Raeburn Place is via the car park entrance at the bottom of Portgower Place. As the car park is in use by the contractor, there is NO parking for players or spectators.

Please note our post-match hospitality will still be at the Dean Bowling Club.

Coach's comments
"We are delighted to welcome back Cole Lamberton this week, after his Scotland U19 duties last Sunday; Patrick O’Sullivan, who was away with the Waterboys at the Dubai 7s; and Jack Paterson, who pulled out late due to illness last week.

"GHA will be riding high after a great win in Marr last weekend and we will need to be at our best."

2nd XV v Heriot's Blues 2nd XV, Broughton High School, 14:00
The 2nd XV will be looking forward to this encounter and the chance to avenge themselves for the narrow defeat suffered at Goldenacre earlier in the season.

Please note this game will now be played at Broughton High School and not at Raeburn Place as previously scheduled.

3rd XV v Peebles A - POSTPONED
The Entertainers fixutre against top-of-the-table Peebles has been postponed due to pitch availability.
