On Friday 24th October the newly formed P7 football team from Musselburgh Burgh Primary School took part in the Grandison Trophy at Pinkie Playing Fields. The Burgh played some outstanding football and were victorious, winning the competition for the first time in its 34 year history. Congratulations to the whole squad!

On Friday 24th October, Musselburgh Burgh’s Primary 7 football team celebrated a fantastic victory in the George S. Grandison Memorial tournament at Pinkie Playing Fields.
On the day of the 7-a-side competition, the Burgh team competed against other schools in the Musselburgh cluster including Pinkie, Wallyford, Loretto RC and Stoneyhill. Campie’s team were forced to withdraw from the tournament due to lack of players.
The Burgh’s victory was the first time that the school had ever won the trophy since it started in 1980.
Musselburgh Burgh’s winning team was made up of players from both primary 7 and primary 6/7. Adam was fantastic as Goalkeeper, conceding only three goals in five games. Stewart and Ceri were rock-solid in defence, captain Finn led the team from centre-midfield while Murray (left-midfield) and striker Craig were the top scorers for the team.
Aaron had an excellent tournament at right-midfield and starred in all five games for the Burgh. Jay found some great passes when used as a substitute, and came close to scoring many times. James, Cameron and Luke also played very well and contributed to the team’s ultimate success.
Musselburgh Burgh’s tournament victory was all the more impressive due to the fact that they had only trained together once prior to the competition!
The Burgh opened the tournament with a 2-1 victory over Wallyford, despite having to come from a goal down. That result set the team spirit for the next game in which the Burgh beat Stoneyhill 1-0 with a penalty from Craig being decisive. They followed that with a 2-1 win against Pinkie.
Coach, Mr Lyall made changes for the final group game against Loretto and the Burgh were unlucky to lose 1-0. However, they still progressed to the final of the tournament and put in an excellent performance to beat Wallyford again, this time by a comprehensive 3-0 score line!
Mr Lyall said, “the whole squad were outstanding throughout the tournament and were deserved winners of the trophy.”
The team were delighted with their success and are now hoping the school will be able to get a trophy cabinet large enough for both their Grandison trophy and the Meadowbank Athletics cup they took home in May.

The p7 will meet there buddy or buddies on the 10th of November. The p7s have learnt how to be a good role model to the younger children and keep them safe. They have another session next week.

You may be aware that P6, P6/7 and P7 are taking part in a mock court case trial. We have been told that on the forum there is a parent questionnaire for the parents to fill in. If the parents fill it in our burgh teams will be rewarded with extra points. Can’t wait to see those questionnaires.

On Friday 30th January the Burgh Bikeability 2 cyclists and Scouts from 1st Musselburgh Scouts worked together with parent volunteers, the Scout Leader, Jo, and Paul and David from ACE Bikes, Musselburgh.
The children completed Bike Safety checks and passed on their checks to the parents and mechanics for repairs. Everyone worked together in a fantastic team. Paul and David also showed the children how to adjust brakes and gears on their bikes.

These vital bike safety checks were funded by money through Bikeability and Cycling Scotland. We now have 32 bikes in good working order for our next Bikeability Training and for the use of the children during playtimes.
Well done and thank you everybody!
