Photographer's Note

Greenyards is the home of Melrose Rugby Football Club. The ground is situated in the heart of the town.
The Scottish Borders has a great rugby tradition with all the border towns having their own teams. Many of the all-time great players of Scottish Rugby have came from the Borders area.
Melrose rugby club was formed in 1877 and have won 9 Scottish Championships and 17 Border League titles.
However Melrose is probably best known for the Melrose Sevens, an annual 7-a-side competition. Indeed it is the oldest such tournament and attracts teams from all over the world including New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Japan and Hong Kong - as well as top teams from Scotland and England. The tournament regularly attracts crowds of 10,000, quite an achievement for a small town with a population of around 3,500.
