A successful charity football match proved to be a winner recently.

Midlothian car repair men, Belmont Warriors laid down the gauntlet to The Forth 1 All-stars in a match at Bonnyrigg Rose’s New Dundas Park.

The Belmont group enlisted the support of Hibs legend Pat Stanton but despite his football nous the All-stars ran out 17-3 winners. More than £1,000 was raised for Cash for Kids.
