Chris Black and Graeme Kiddie of Morgan Academy faced another ex-Glasgow pro, Fraser Stott of East Kilbride
There were some familiar faces to Glasgow supporters among the players taking part in finals day at Murrayfield.

Rory Kerr and Kenny Sinclair helped Glasgow Hawks to victory over Edinburgh Accies in the Cup, but they weren't the only former Glasgow pros playing.

The ageless Cammy Little came off the bench to lead GHK's fightback against Creiff and Strathearn in the Plate. The scrum-half helped himself to two tries and the man-of-the-match award with GHK running out 34-29 winners.

The McKenzie brothers - Kevin and Mark - helped Falkirk beat Garnock 15-14 in the Shield, and the Bowl saw Graeme Kiddie and Chris Black of Morgan Academy take on Fraser Stott of East Kilbride, Morgan running out 18-11 winners.

Elsewhere, Bedford Blues have signed former Glasgow pro Rory Mackay from Waterloo. Bedford coach Mike Rayer said: "Rory was quite outstanding in both fixtures against us this season. His tenacity and work rate were fantastic and on top of this he ran the line out extremely well. We very pleased indeed to secure his services as we have been searching for a quality No. 8 for some time."

Edinburgh Rugby has signed Roland Reid for next season. The former Glasgow player will join the club on two year deal, subject to a medical. After leaving Glasgow Roly played for London Irish and Leeds Tykes before moving to South African side Fidentia Boland Caveliers. The club won the ABSA Currie Cup Championship in 2006 and promotion to the top flight before the team's demise.

Roly said: "I am really happy to be signing for Edinburgh. I always wanted to come back to Scotland and this has happened a little sooner than expected given the situation at Boland and so I am grateful for this opportunity. Edinburgh is the ideal place not just for me but for my fiancée too. I'm looking forward to trying to establish myself in the team and I'd love to finish my career with Edinburgh."
