Many congratulations to our Head Groundsman, Michael Yan Hip, and his team who last night won the Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG) Independent School Grounds Team of the Year Award at last night in Birmingham.
This award marks the culmination of eight dedicated years with a vision to bring the best to Merchiston, to ensure the current boys and those of the future play on the best surfaces, helping inspire them to greatness.
Here is a picture of the winning team with our Head Groundman, Stuart Chalmers and Dave Stewart showing off an example of their prize-winning handiwork.
We are pleased to welcome two new members to the Grounds staff pictured below. They will be fully introduced in the next Head Groundman's entertaining BLOG which can be found here.
Congratulations to the entire team on this fantastic achievement.
