This was a tough season for Edinburgh 2.
There were a number of close matches throughout the season, which went against us.
We started off with a heavy defeat to Edinburgh 1 – indeed the games were closer than the result. Draws against Badgers Brook and University, along with narrow defeats by Edinburgh West and Dragons A, meant that we reached the halfway mark with only 2 points.
The second half of the season got underway with a tight defeat against Edinburgh 1, giving them a bit of a fright. We followed this up with a win against Badgers Brook, our seasons highlight!
We then claimed a default win against University, when they failed to turn up at Alva Street. Edinburgh West and Dragons A both beat us leaving us to wait for the final two games between Edinburgh 1 and University, with University needing to win one to overtake us. Edinburgh 1 won one and claimed one by default. This ensured that Edinburgh 2 remained in the playoff place.
The playoff match was against Bank of Scotland which was closely contested with Edinburgh 2 winning narrowly. Hence we will be in the Premier League next season.
Thanks to all who played this season.
