I am delighted to announce that Boroughmuir has been successful in its bid for a SUPER6 franchise team due to kick off in our Centenary 2019-2020 season!
Boroughmuir’s bid focussed on a combination of community development through multisport inclusivity, and in providing a pathway from minis right through to professional rugby. The award is testament to our vision of developing rugby and sport in general at all levels.
The Edinburgh region was the most competitive in the bid process, with 4 of the top 6 Premiership teams hailing from the capital. In the spirit of our community-based ethos, we will seek to work with all Edinburgh clubs towards maximising the opportunities for all aspiring players in the area.
In preparing the bid, a tremendous amount of work had been put in by the Board and numerous volunteers who have worked creatively, intelligently, and tirelessly over the last few months. I would like to thank all of those involved as together we prepared a clear, and highly structured and compelling bid. In particular, I would like to thank the community sports clubs that have bought into what we are trying to achieve together.
There is much work to do now in turning the vision into reality, and I look forward to joining that journey with you all.
Well done everyone!
Boroughmuir Rugby and Community Sports Club
