Edinburgh rugby club Stewart’s Melville seeks players for next season

front_cover_steve_rennieStewart’s Melville FP RFC invites all players to join us for the 2015/16 season as we look to improve on our recent achievements. Season 2015/16 is going to be hugely exciting as the 1st XV look to build on their third place league finish in the 2014/15 season after narrowly missing out on a playoff spot.

The 1st XV play in BT National League 1 while our youthful 2nd XV were champions of Reserve League National 2 this season. We also run a 3rd XV and an over 35s / Vets team will be fielded next season, with fixtures taking place throughout the season.

Stewart’s Melville is a very social club, where enjoyment is at the forefront of how we play, both on and off the pitch.

We aim to provide the best environment for players to develop, whatever level they aspire to play, whilst boasting some of the best pitches and facilities in Scotland, located in the heart of Edinburgh.

Our 1st XV will be coached next season by Bruce Ruthven (backs – level 3 qualified), Neil Graham (forwards – head of SRU’s Coach Education Department) and Jim Thompson (team manager – played for Edinburgh and London Scottish).

If you are looking to take your game to the next level, or play for the enjoyment of the game, then we are the club to join.

If you would be interested in joining our fantastic club, please contact Bruce Ruthven (bkruthven@esms.org.uk).
