A massive thank you to the second of our pitch sponsors, the venue hosts, Hallhill Sports Centre. More incredible generosity, as Bobby Peters has sponsored 3 of our pitches on behalf of Hallhill Sports Centre.

We are incredibly lucky to have access to the facilities we do. We have approaching (if not already), 400 children at our community club.
The facility provides a superb platform for us to deliver football for our kids.

From Bobby who has worked tirelessly over the years, Yvonne in the kitchen feeding hungry parents (and coaches!), Darren maintaining the pitches, to all the guys and girls who work behind the bar and at the centre. Thank you again.

We cannot wait to welcome 7-aside teams to all three pitches at ‘Hallhill Sports Centre Stadium’, on Saturday the 18th of June. Pitches will sit perfectly in front of the centre on the rugby pitch, in view of the superb new extension.

We are honestly speechless at the support our under 17’s received on Monday night. It’s a night the age group won’t ever forget.

Not only did we sell 67 seats on a supporters bus, but you absolutely packed out the dugout terrace on Monday at Olivebank. And, got right behind the lads. It was truly incredible.

We are so, so proud at the way the lads performed on Monday and conducted themselves. Like so many at our club, our under 17’s are a truly special group. The boys gave us absolutely everything and showed what it means to them, playing with their mates.

Our under 17’s squad: Jake Henderson, Ruairidh Munro, Michael Seeley, Alastair Zochowski, Aaron Turnbull, Harry Clark, Daniel Hall, Adam Collin (Captain), Connor Carmichael, Gregor Goldie, Morgan Laird, Taylor Anderson, Ross Buckley, David McIntyre, Jasiu Zakrzewski, Callum Sands, Alby Lorimer, Charlie McGinn, Aidan Beattie, Declan Hannan & Dylan White.

Must say a huge thank you to the wonderful people at Eve Coaches Ltd. Special thanks to Jason our driver, who transported our squad in their 32 luxury executive coach. Thank you.

Our fantastic community club depends on community engagement. We have a special club in sunny dunny. Nights like that remind us why we are involved in youth football.

Thank you so much for your support!


We are delighted to see four of under 17’s make an appearance as trialists for Dunbar United FC on Tuesday night. All 4 are competitive debuts. Adam Collin, Declan Hannan, Daniel Hall and Ruairidh Munro.

The lads came on in DUFC’s East of Scotland Cup fixture against Ormiston, ending in a 0-0 draw. It came 24 hours after their cup victory.

As a club, we are hugely proud, but it’s an exciting example of where the club’s pathway can lead to.

As ever, thank you to DUFC for making the lads feel welcome. And of course, Kevin Haynes for giving the lads the opportunity.

Massive congratulations lads. Another example of the hugely positive relationship and exciting steps both clubs are taking forward.

Our boys under 17’s have reached the final of the Tom Wilson Memorial Trophy..

The game will be played at Olivebank Stadium, Musselburgh, with the match kicking off @ 19:00. The lads face Musselburgh Windsor, who are current league leaders.

We’d love to turn Olivebank black & white that night and make it feel like a home crowd, to cheer on the lads.

For that reason, we are running a supporters bus for any DUCFC members (players/coaches/parents). But importantly, anyone from the local community, that would like to get behind the lads on the night.

Full details below:

Bus cost:

Adults – £8
Under 16’s – £5
(Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult).

Adults – £3
Under 16’s – FREE
Pay at the gate – CASH ONLY

Bus leaves Hallhill HLC @ 17:45 on Monday the 2nd of May. Leaving Olivebank after FT.

Must say a big thanks to Eve Coaches Ltd in helping us organise.
