KHS made the final after defeating Portobello High School 2-1 in the semi-final, as goals from Jordan Tosh and Charlie Ramsay saw the school through to a national final for the first time since 1981.

“It’s a brilliant achievement and I am so proud of all the boys,” said rector Derek Allan. “Also, many thanks to Mr English and Mr I’Anson for their excellent coaching and leadership.”
