Newbattle High School clinched the Lothian Senior League title recently with a win over rivals Musselburgh.

And with a Lothian Cup semi-final against Dunbar to come the double is still on. Newbattle’s Director of Football John Frame said: “To win the Lothian League is always a great achievement and requires both commitment and consistency every week from August through to April. It is a fitting reward for this group in particular as we have five players from sixth year in the side who have played over 100 games for the school, a feat which is probably unique in any school and will be marked at our annual awards ceremony.”
