THE Morebattle Primary School 7-a-side football team, pictured left, coached by Carlo di Lorenzo, lifted the cup at the recent annual Greenlaw Primary School Football Festival.

Although the tournament is not competitive in nature, the Morebattle squad finished the day unbeaten after six highly-contested games.

They played some beautiful football along the way and were thrilled to be awarded the Fair Play Cup.

The other primary schools that participated were Ayton, Chirnside, Coldstream, Eccles, Greenlaw, Melrose and Swinton.

Despite some heavy rain at times, it was a great day and all participating kids and organisers should be proud of it.
