'Rose's 23-13 win against Boroughmuir, in which Murray played a key role, coupled with Stirling County's excellent 22-12 win over Dundee HSFP at Mayfield, means that the RBS Premier 1 silverware is once again bound for the Greenyards.
Murray, now 37, who featured in the last of his 26 games for Scotland 11 years ago, has played on for Melrose simply because of his love for the game.
In an interview with www.scottishrugby.org, Murray, a PE teacher at Berwickshire High School in Duns, said: "I've been lucky enough to do a lot of things in my rugby career whether at Haddington, Hawick and Melrose in the club game and then playing for Scotland.
"I've got some great memories, winning the Cup with Hawick, winning the league and promotion when I was a youngster at Haddington and the back-to-back titles with Melrose."
Murray, who played professionally for Edinburgh Reivers, scored seven tries for Scotland in his three year international career, the highlight of which was being part of the 1999 Five Nations Championship winning side.
