Heriot-Watt University FC – Autumn 2017

A relatively strong start from the senior 1st team, taking part in the East of Scotland league, currently sees them 4th in the league, hoping to kick on as the season progresses and push for the top of the league. They unfortunately fell short in their attempts to qualify for the Scottish Cup, losing a well fought contest 1-0 at home to Leith Athletic in the Alex Jack Cup.

The U20s have also had a strong start to the season, beating Burntisland Shipyard 9-2 in their first league game. In a game that saw recent Currie Star under 17s graduate Cameron Scott start, the U20s fought bravely as they lost 4-0 to St Mirren U20s in the Scottish Youth Cup. Cameron joins the other 5 Currie Star Graduates who made a superb impact having made the transition from Currie Star under 19s to Heriot-Watt last year.


A strong start for the BUCS sides has seen the 1st and 3rd team top their respective tables, with the 2nd team only 2nd in their league due to goals scored. The campaign continues on 11th October with the start of the cup, the most notable fixture seeing the 1st team hosting Aberdeen University 1st team.

The club continue to strive forward and are fortunate to soon benefit from a 400-seater stand being built on the outdoor synthetic, thanks to FIFA funding. Of the 400 seats, 200 seats will look into the outdoor artificial pitch, as well as covered seating for the adjacent grass pitch. This could be finished as soon as the new year, and will allow more spectators to enjoy outdoor football at Oriam.
