Edinburgh Accies vs The Rest
On Saturday 6th August 2011, the Edinburgh Academical Rugby Football Club is hosting a ‘white collar’ boxing event called ‘Fight Night’. Fifteen Edinburgh Accies rugby players have thrown down the gauntlet to players from other Scottish rugby clubs in an effort to create a unique sporting event, the likes of which Edinburgh has never seen before.
The Accies players and the challengers (Heriots, Watsonians, Stewart Melville, Currie, Boroughmuir, Falkirk) are all receiving 10 weeks of boxing training at the Lochend Boxing Club www.laboxing.btik.com. Professional referees and judges will adjudicate the bouts. Tables seat eight people with ticket prices at £50, £60 and £75. Price includes a champagne reception, three course dinner and wine. Event timings are 6.30pm – 12am with a dress code of ‘Dress to Impress!’
In order to also address a worthy cause the winning team will choose a charity of their choice and a percentage of the proceeds will go to that charity. Please contact Stuart Paterson or Paul Arnold on firstname.lastname@example.org for all tickets and enquiries.
