Congratulations to Jamie C (12-14) who has been selected by Lancashire County Cricket Club for this year's Academy.  Lancashire Academy is led by former Lancashire off-spinner Gary Yates.

In 1857, a Merchiston boarder John Crum wrote a letter to a friend, David Murray, in which he said, "We are playing football now and expect to come to close quarters with the renowned Edinburgh Academy".  In 1858, Merchiston took on the Academy for the first time and tomorrow, the oldest running rugby fixture in the world continues when the boys go head to head at Merchiston.  Feel free to pop along if you are in the area, times of fixtures can be found here.
