Newly-promoted Boroughmuir will kick off their return to Premiership rugby with a visit from Stirling County on Saturday, August 30.

A fixture list seen by the Evening News also has Currie and Heriot’s at home on the opening day, against Hawick and Glasgow Hawks respectively.

The other Capital outfit, Edinburgh Accies, head for champions Melrose for their first competitive outing under new coach, Phil Leck.

The second weekend brings the first Edinburgh derby as Accies entertain Boroughmuir.

A festive break kicks in after December 13 but clubs will be in cup action on January 3 before league action resumes seven days later.

The final round of Premiership matches is due to take place on March 14 with a promotion/relegation play-off also included in the programme.
