What’s on at the Athletic Ground this weekend:

26th January 2017

We’ve got an action packed Super Saturday in store as we welcome Yorkshire Carnegie to the Athletic Ground for the return of Greene King IPA Championship action.

The Scots currently sit fifth in the table and face Bryan Redpath’s side who occupy second place and have lost just once so far this season.

This match last year was one of the most dramatic seen in recent times at the Athletic Ground. Scottish trailed 8-20 with just 10 minutes remaining but two late tries and two touchline conversions from Peter Lydon gave his side what was a memorable 22-20 victory.

Mac The Lion Is Back! 
London Scottish have teamed up with Tunnock’s and created a brand new mascot to bring joy and excitement to young and old! Mac will feature at all match days bringing energy, crowd challenges and of course big celebrations for those try scoring moments.

Keep your eyes out for the return of Mac ahead of the 14:00 kick-off, and tweet us your pictures with him using the hashtag #MacIsBack.

Whilst also enhancing the match day experience with music after tries and penalties to create a better atmosphere, we will have Cody Spicer playing live music from 13:30 during the warm-ups as the crowd arrives to the main stand.
