Match Summary Cup R1: Accies v Musselburgh

Saturday 26 October
Accies 1st XV 32-24 Musslburgh 1st XV
On a beautiful early autumn afternoon, we played our first Scottish Cup match of the season at New Field. Musselburgh's young side were obviously inspired by the sunshine, constantly coming back at us and eventually closing the gap to less than one score. A fortuitous penalty close to the final whistle, gave us some breathing space and secured a 32-24 win to take us into the second round of the Cup. The draw has taken place and we will play Jed-Forest at Raeburn Place on 25 January, ko 13:30.

Our heartfelt thanks to the Edinburgh Academy for the use of New Field and to Dean Bowling Club for once again hosting our pre and post-match hospitality.

Our Jacoby Rugs Man of the Match was Jack Bruce. Jack is kindly sponsored by Development Services Partnership.
