MOL-SCOTTISH Football Primary Champions!!!

Yes, that’s right! MOL have today been crowned Scottish Champions! Report below. What an INCREDIBLE achievement!

Milton of Leys won the Scottish Schools National Finals at Toryglen in Glasgow today.

We had an early start this morning to get to Glasgow having previously won the Regional Qualifier in Dundee in March. The boys played outstandingly and were the only team to make it through the day unbeaten.

We were drawn in Group A in a different format to previous rounds of the competition with fewer matches but longer games.

Results

Milton of Leys 2-0 Holy Cross (Kilsyth) Dillon, Greg

Milton of Leys 4-2 Stewart’s Melville College (Edinburgh) Dillon, Kenzie, Greg, Rhylen

Milton of Leys 4-1 All Saints (Greenock) Kenzie, Dillon, Greg, Archie

We qualified for the final with 3 convincing wins to play against the winners from Group B.

Final

Milton of Leys 4-3 St.Brigids (Glasgow) Kenzie 2, Dillon, Archie.

We started the final in blazing fashion, scoring direct from centre then quickly adding 2 more goals to go 3 nil up. St.Brigids, who had a couple of Rangers players in their team, fought back to 3-2. We immediately replied witha 4th and were managing the game out well. The referee added quite a bit of injury time at the end and they got a 3rd. With the last kick of the game Archie saved a shot on the line to stop them from equalising and take the game to penalties. There were great
scenes when the ref blew the final whistle to make MoL Scottish Champions.

Every Coach we played against today commented on what a great team we were. We pressed high, battled hard in midfield and defended as one. The boys thoroughly deserved their win today.

STV Children’s Appeal were filming today so the boys will be on TV at some point including Rhylen being interviewed on camera before we started.

Massive thanks to the brilliant travelling support we had today. Genuinely appreciate the effort everyone made to cheers us on. Thanks to Coach Liam for driving the minibus today.

What a superb day for our club and school. Only 8 years old and we are Scottish Champions. 🔴⚪️🔴
