There were celebrations at Braidholm as GHA beat newly-crowned Premiership 2 champions Watsonians to join them on the ladder to the top flight.

The achievement comes in their first season; following the amalgamation of Glasgow Southern and Hutchesons’/Aloysians in the summer.

GHA made the perfect start with a try by John Fitzpatrick after just three minutes, converted by James Noonan – who later added two penalties.
