The Scottish Cup visited schools throughout Midlothian last week but it also managed to drop in to Cowden Park in Dalkeith during its whistlestop tour of the county.

The visit to Cowden Park, home of Dalkeith Thistle Community Football Club and the club’s Academy, proved a fantastic night for some of their players and coaches alike and gave them the opportunity to get their 
photos taken with the oldest piece of silverware in football history.

Dalkeith Thistle Community FC is a local club which is expanding every week throughout all age groups, as well as the girls’ section, so having the opportunity of seeing the Scottish Cup was a huge benchmark for their players.
