Hibernian waited 114 years, since 1902 when it last won the famous trophy, to win the Scotish Cup again.

To celebrate this achievement, they are conducting the ‘Persevered Scottish Cup Trophy Tour’. Persevere being the motto of Leith, the home of Hibernian Football Club.

All those years of pain vanished in a split second, when Club captain David Gray headed home a Liam Henderson corner deep into injury time to defeat Rangers 3-2. To celebrate this achievement, this tour is visiting 114 venues across Edinburgh and the surrounding areas.

It has visited a number of venues in Midlothian and last night was the turn of Bonnyrigg Rose Football Club.

Players, coaches, parents and grand parents all came to the Poltonhall Pavilion, the new home of Bonnyrigg Rose Youth Football Club, to have their photographs taken with the world’s oldest football trophy. Long lines of queues developed throughout the evening as everyone waited to get ther snap.
