Lasswade High School seniors celebrated the opening of a new 3G football pitch by taking on their teachers in a “friendly” match.

Hearts manager Gary Locke officially opened the new pitch, which was part of the second and final phase of work at the new £37.5 million Lasswade Centre

The students were obviously in high spirits, beating the staff 3-0. The event also raised money for charity by donations from spectators, with £300 going to Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS) .
