Two Great Results

12 Feb 2017

I would just like to pay tribute to the players and supporters that braved the elements on Saturday at Goldenacre. It started off cold and dry but soon there were freezing cold showers passing through, and it was evident in the difficulties in handling that the players were struggling. The showers even penetrated the stands driving the support further and further back. Despite the conditions Melrose came back with the points in both matches. The Storm completed their defence of the BT National Reserve League 1 undefeated, and the Firsts are now assured of a first home play-off in the Premiership. The result also means we brought the Bill MacLaren Shield back down the road, but we shall just have to worry about that later.

 

This week we are hosting our Farmers’ Lunch as well as welcoming Hawick to the Greenyards with the Greens having played themselves away from bottom slot on Saturday. The weather looks like taking a better turn, so we can but hope for another entertaining match!
