Newbattle HSFC - B15 - Scotland
Newbattle is a state high school situated in Midlothian just outside Edinburgh, Scotland. Football is a big part of our extra-curricular activities with our teams playing in various Lothian Schools’ Leagues and enjoying a fair bit of success. We have 3 grass pitches and a new 4G Astro facility.
In 2005 we came to Dana Cup for the first time and enjoyed the experience so much we have returned every year since mainly with our B15 team. There have been so many great memories over the years but two stand out our 2009 team defeating a Brazilian side to win the Group trophy and in 2012 our side surpassed all expectations by reaching the quarter-finals.
Our B15 team this year are performing well at home and we are very hopeful that they can reach the A tournament.
As a school we are very much involved in the Global Goals initiative with Goals 3 (Good Health & Wellbeing) and 4 (Quality Education) very close to our hearts.
