The Team Behind The Fans Group
Below you will see the team behind the fans group. We are all passionate supporters of Edinburgh Rugby and have all been fans for many years. If you look around the stands at games you are sure to bump into one of us. After a game some of us even partake in a light refreshment in the Clubhouse bar.

Despite playing a lot in my teens, I had a bit of a hiatus from rugby until I started attending Edinburgh games in 2014 after being given a pair of free tickets from a family member. I have been a season ticket holder of both Edinburgh and Scotland since 2017.
I am from just outside Falkirk, I played rugby when I was a little boy for a year or two however my mum stopped me going as she was scared I would hurt someone! Became interested again at high school until girlfriends became more of a priority.
