More than 450 High School pupils, plus staff, parents and former pupils, will be heading through to Edinburgh tonight to cheer on the boys as they look to win the U16 title for the School for the first time.

And, as if that support wasn't enough, the team has also received backing from none other than former Scotland captain and former pupil Andy Nicol!     

After visiting the School to talk to the squad and hand out the match shirts to the starting XV, Andy, who will be at the final himself to cheer on the boys, said, "I saw on social media a month or so ago that they were playing Edinburgh Academy in the quarter-final in Edinburgh and I know a couple of the parents of sons who are playing, so I popped over to watch and just thoroughly enjoyed it.

"They got through in a really gutsy performance in that game and then I went to see the semi at Fettes, which was a much more comfortable win.

"I told them to enjoy it and play the game not the occasion. If they show the character they had to win that quarter-final, and the quality that they had in the semi-final, bring all that together in the final and see what happens.”

The final, which is being played on Murrayfield’s international pitch, starts at 6pm.  Entry to the final is free, no ticket required, via the West Stand. Car parking will be available on a first come, first served, basis in the Saughtonhall car park.  

Good luck boys!
