Football Team

"Murrayburn Primary School Football Team was very successful in the early-1950s.  They won every trophy that the primary schools could win, in one season."

"I've just been reminiscing about my childhood in Sighthill and saw the  picture of Murrayburn Interscholastic team.

 I was in that team, front row, third from left.  My family moved from Sighthill when I was 10 years old in 1954, so I believe that the pic would have been taken around 1953 or 1954.

I  think the event was at the old Meadowbank stadium."
