Reds Fixtures for 2017-2018
The fixture list for BT East 1 league has finally been issued. The Reds kick off the new season with a HOME match on Saturday 26 August against North Berwick.
The delay in issuing the fixtures was caused by a split in the RHC Rugby Club, with the former Royal High Club “grouping”, including most of the RHC 1st team players, the Ladies team and the Royal High youth rugby, splitting out and establishing themselves as Barnton RFC.
Scottish Rugby’s Championship Committee in conjunction with the legal and governance group had to determine which team was entitled to play in which league. The eventual outcome is that Barnton will restart in BT East 2, with the Union Park (Corstorphine) based RHC Club being allowed to keep their BT National 3 status. However, the RHC Club has sought and been granted voluntary relegation to BT East 1 – the league in which the Reds play.
Both North Berwick (2nd last season) and Hawick Harlequins (3rd) were offered promotion to BT National 3 to fill the vacant slot. However they both declined which leaves BT East 1 at 11 teams for this season – hence two blank weekends to accommodate the odd number of teams.
Perthshire, who finished 3rd bottom in BT National 3 last season, have accepted the offer to stay up, maintaining BT National 3 at 12 teams.
