Premiership play-off date and venue confirmed

The date and venue for the RBS Premiership play-off has been confirmed, it was announced today.

Following the title being decided in the most dramatic fashion by Melrose last weekend, Edinburgh Accies, the ninth place side in the Premiership will meet the runners-up in the RBS National League, Stewart’s-Melville FP, at Lasswade’s Hawthornden ground on Saturday 5 April, with a 3pm kick-off.

Last season’s inaugural play-off saw Hawick (then of the National League) triumph over Dundee HSFP at Meggetland in a match which ebbed and flowed towards a pulsating finish.
