Andrew Bell names players to play against Boroughmuir...

The 1st XV return to competitive action for the first time since the start of the pandemic on Saturday and Head Coach Andrew Bell has named his squad to take on Boroughmuir.

The Tennent's National League Division One match against our near neighbours takes place at Myreside at 3pm and all support would be welcome.

Back-row Stuart Allison skippers a side featuring a lot of new names, but there is plenty of exciting, young talent in the ranks as we move forwards.

Bell said: "We’ve been working towards this date for a few months now, so everyone at the club is looking forward to Saturday.

"We’re definitely still in a building phase as we continue to define our style of play, we’re understanding more about different combinations of players and we’ll be using these first few weeks of the season to get a better idea of what works well and areas that we can improve on.

"Having said that, we fronted up physically really well in our two friendlies and executed chances effectively so the lads are rightly full of confidence and are really looking forward to getting going at Myreside on Saturday."
