Quarryhill Primary wins Wm Gilchrist Invitational

The first Wm Gilchrist Invitational seven-a-side football tournament has been won by Quarryhill Primary School.

Aberdeen-based funeral directors Wm Gilchrist announced the tournament last month as a way of giving something back to the community.

Quarryhill won the tournament with a 1-0 victory over Mile End in a tightly-contested final. In victory Quarryhill also won £200 for their school, with runners-up Mile End receiving £100 for theirs. Each child from the 10 participating schools received a medal for their efforts.

Manager of Wm Gilchrist Mac Dow said: “We couldn’t have asked for anything more, the enthusiasm and team spirit were fantastic and the children have said they’re looking forward to next year. Congratulations to Quarryhill Primary who played some excellent football and have set the standard for next year.”
