Musselburgh Windsor FC Under 19's clinched the 1st Division of the South East Region Youth Football 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 game on Thursday 31st May, and the presentation of the league trophy was made after the game by Dave Young, President of the South East Region Youth Football. The team finished 11 points clear of the second placed team in the league. They also completed the season with a 100% record in the 10 away games. This is 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.
