Dalkeith High School plays host to penultimate disability South East league fixtures

Wednesday, 04 April 2012

Dalkeith High School was the venue for the penultimate round of fixtures in the South East learning disability school league.

The standard of players and games was at a high level with teams fighting, not only to be named champions of the South East region, but also to qualify for the national finals and attempt to be crowned the national winner for 2012.

Across the country, 31 teams are fighting to make the national finals on 30th May at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Centre in Glasgow.

Many teams are beginning to book their place for what is turning out to be a wide open competition.

David McArdle, disability development officer at the Scottish FA, said: “The School leagues across the country, showing a very high standard of player and quality matches, are taking place all round the country.

“This all lends itself to having a fantastic national finals and players who can represent Scotland at under -19 learning disability level.

“The South East League is incredible with four teams fighting out on the last games of the season, this is what football is all about and I can’t wait to crowning what will be very well deserved winners”
