Boroughmuir will have a new head coach in place next season after it was announced that Fergus Pringle will be leaving his role at the end of the current campaign.

The Meggetland club’s defeat to Heriot’s last weekend in the dying minutes of the match leaves them edging closer to relegation from the RBS Premiership.

And, after four years at the helm, former Edinburgh player Pringle and the club’s committee have agreed it is time for a change.

Pringle said: “I have had a great time at Boroughmuir and have really enjoyed working with the players, who have always given me their full ­support.

“I would like to thank the coaching and management team for all the effort they have put in. It has been a tough season – incredibly competitive – and we have been on the wrong side of some close results.”

Boroughmuir chairman Bill Watson added: “We wish to thank Fergus for his services to the club, firstly as player and then as head coach. We wish him and his family all the best for the future.”
