Why Murrayfield Wanderers FC
Edinburgh Wanderers and Murrayfield merged in 1997, to form Murrayfield Wanderers. For 2-3 seasons prior to this, they had shared a clubhouse at Murrayfield. So the merger was an easy and non-contentious decision.
In the 1990s a Touch Section was formed. This has grown to be a weekly event, which is held in all weathers every week throughout the season.
A fund-raising Trust was mooted in 2006, and officially the Murrayfield Wanderers Rugby Trust Foundation was formed in 2007, and received charitable status in November 2007. Its aims are to enhance life opportunities, well being, healthy living for the local young people, specifically via rugby. This is done by going into schools with a funded Development Officer.
In 2018, the club celebrated 150 years of rugby, including a gala dinner at Murrayfield attended by over 300 guests. Ironically, also in 2018, the SRU terminated our tenure at Murrayfield, ending a tenancy between the SRU and MWFC which stretched back to 1902! The club "wandered" to base itself at Roseburn Park, adjacent to Murrayfield. Our aim is to have a new multi-sported clubrooms at Roseburn Park, covering cricket and rugby. But in the interim we are based at the Riversdale Bar in Murrayfield Ice Rink.
We currently play in the Tennants National League 3 with the aspirations on gaining promotion this season.
