The Club marked its 160th season in 2017/18 in fitting style, securing promotion to the Premiership after an exciting season of 1st XV rugby that went down to the wire, as well as beating Heriot's in round 1 of the Cup. We also had an exhibition in the Football Museum at Hampden, in honour of us being the oldest football club of any code in Scotland.

Although it was a struggle some weeks to put out three XVs, this is still something we aim to achieve. We are extremely lucky to have such dedicated team managers, coaches, physios, committee members and volunteers, who all contribute to getting as many players as possible out on the field of a Saturday.

The successes on the pitch were mirrored off the pitch, with attendance at home matches up on previous years, pre-match lunches fully booked, and an increase in both the number of, and attendance at, the many social events, both club, corporate, and private, held at Raeburn Place.

In order to continue and develop on last season's success, especially as we return to the top flight of Scottish rugby, it is essential that we have a growing and vibrant social membership. As well as providing much needed funds to support the ever increasing costs of running a rugby club, our social members give very welcome encouragement to the players and add considerably to the atmosphere at Raeburn Place.

Your support is very important to the club. In return, whatever category of membership you choose, you will be entitled to apply for International tickets, enter the Club Lottery and benefit from Accies Shop Local. Further details of our various membership categories and the associated benefits are below.

We hope you will consider becoming a member this season. Whether you are renewing, rejoining or joining for the first time, you are assured of a warm welcome at Raeburn Place.
