Musselburgh Windsor FC Under 19s clinched the 1st Division of the South East Region League in style on Monday 29th April, beating their local rivals Haddington Athletic 4-1, at the Whittinghame Drive 3G complex in Haddington.

Cheered on by a large Windsor support the boys were two up at half time, thanks to goals from Jordon Burrows and Keiran McHarg. Haddington pulled a goal back at the start of the second half, but the Windsor responded immediately, scoring a third with a tremendous strike from Ryan McConville. The points and the league title were wrapped up when Ewan Ralton scored a fourth with 20 minutes to go.

The team played their final away game in the league on Saturday 11th May, beating Tweedmouth 3-1. This win means they have a 100% record in the 10 away games this season, a tremendous achievement by this squad, who are the youngest in the league, with all members still in their first year at U19 level. Many of the boys have also been with the club for more than 10 years and, after a few heart-breaking attempts at the league, this was at last one to saviour.

Musselburgh Windsor now play 3 semi-finals in the space of 5 days, starting with the Federation of Hibs Cup against Bonnyrigg at Pinkie St Peters School on Saturday 18th, followed by the League Cup away to Leith Athletic on Monday 20th and finishing with another game at Pinkie on Wednesday 22nd against Hutchison Vale.
