Scots rugby star Chris Paterson will end his illustrious playing career this weekend when Edinburgh play their final match of the season.
The 34-year-old full back confirmed in December his test career was over after setting cap and scoring records of 109 appearances with 809 points.
Paterson, who has had two spells with Edinburgh, either side of a stint at Gloucester, is one of ten players set to depart at the end of a season which concludes when the beaten Heineken Cup semi finalists play Treviso at Murrayfield in the RaboDirect PRO12 league on Saturday.
An Edinburgh statement announced Paterson "will take up a new non-playing role with Edinburgh Rugby and Scottish Rugby with further details announced next week".
Scrum half Mike Blair is also poised to feature for Edinburgh for the final time after recently announcing he will move on after a decade at the club.
Three other long-serving players will depart - fly-half Phil Godman, hooker Andrew Kelly and flanker Alan MacDonald - along with front rowers Kyle Traynor and Jack Gilding and Argentinian lock Esteban Lozada.
Edinburgh head coach Michael Bradley said: "Saturday will be a memorable match for a number of reasons. We'll bring the curtain down on an incredible season, say farewell to these fine players and, at the final whistle, look to the future and begin preparations to capitalise on this landmark year.
"It'll be an emotional day for fans and players alike, as they show their mutual appreciation for the role they've played for the club over the years. We've enjoyed a historic season in the Heineken Cup this year with a number of memorable matches here at Murrayfield.”
Bradley admitted that he has been frustrated with Edinburgh’s inconsistency – coming within a whisker of a place in the game’s biggest club cup final, yet languishing in second bottom place in the league.
Bradley added: " This Saturday will be about drawing a line under that element of our season and sending these guys off on a high."
