Walking Football Medal Success

Midlothian Walking Football Team 2017

Medal success for Midlothian

The Midlothian Walking Football team travelled to Netherdale Park, Galashiels on Sunday to take on 10 teams from across Scotland in this annual tournament.

Playing six a side, they took on four teams in the knock out stages winning all four games, only losing one goal. A tough game followed in the semi finals against Kelso ended a draw and thanks to goalkeeper Glenn saving two penalties it was down to the last game, the final against, new team to the circuit, Gretna. Midlothian’s luck changed as Gretna scored in the fourth minute, dominating most of the game which ended 3-1 to Gretna. Excellent day had by all and Midlothian walked away with the runners up medals once again.
