The Melrose 1XV will play their opening game of the 2019 – 2020 Tennent's National League Division 1 campaign at our Annay Road pitch.

The Annay Road pitch, only a short walk from The Greenyards, will become the temporary home of the 1XV due to the instalment of the community 3G sports pitch.

Head coach Stuart Johnson is excited to get the season started. He said: “We can’t wait to get the season underway at our temporary new home on Annay Road against Kelso on Saturday the 7th September.

He added: “I will be great to see the supporters come along and cheer the boys on and really get behind the team”

The opening game on Saturday 7th September will form part of the RBS Rugby Force Day, there will be something for everyone with a covered seated grandstand should you need to hide from a September shower! 

There will be a beer tent with live music throughout the day, the Beetle Juice Cocktail Trailer and  Kowloon Kitchen and The Rolling Stove food stalls. 

There will be something for the kids too, with a bouncy castle and the P5 & P6 minis also playing Kelso at half time! 

It's set to be a great day with the player sponsors announcements for the season back at the club around 6:30pm
