President's Message

Ladies Day

27 Oct 2018

Today we welcome Boroughmuir President Stevie Douglas , his committee and support from Meggetland for the Tennent’s Premiership match this afternoon here at the Greenyards. Having lost out to Heriots last week there is no doubt that the visitors will be looking to make amends this afternoon. This is the half-way point of the league campaign and the fight is on for the four top places for play-off positions at the end of the season.

Last week was a poor week for me to pick as holiday time as from all reports the match against Currie was one of the most entertaining this season, and great credit to the squad for their victory at Malleny Park – well done to all concerned. The Storm went down fighting at Marr last weekend. Today they take on Boroughmuir 2nds at the Battery Field.

Congratulations also to both the EHS Melrose Wasps U16 and U18 teams who recorded victories in their national competitions against Trinity and Kelso respectively. The U18s now play Dunbar GS, with the U16s competing against Edinburgh Academy quickly followed by the long trip up to Elgin to face Gordonstoun on Thursday.

Today is “Ladies Day” at the club and a very warm welcome to all attendees. This event has become a very popular date in the calendar with over 140 ladies sitting down to lunch…and a waiting list. I hope all enjoy their afternoon (and possibly evening!) with us at The Greenyards.

Good luck to all this weekend and see you all in the clubhouse after the game.
