MSP CONGRATULATES PUPILS AT CATHKIN HIGH AFTER CUP WIN

Rutherglen MSP Clare Haughey visited Cathkin High on Friday to join in a celebration ceremony which was organised to mark the schools win at the Scottish Schools Senior Shield last month.

As we reported in May, Cathkin’s senior team beat St Ninian’s High School 4-2 on penalties at Hampden Park to be crowned Scottish champions. To mark this tremendous achievement, Clare Haughey MSP tabled a motion to the Scottish Parliament which she presented to each of the players and the school at a presentation last week.

The Rutherglen MSP’s motion namechecked the squad as well as coaches Mr Lindsay and Mr Haldane, and has been signed by a number of different Labour, Conservative and SNP MSPs.

Commenting, Clare Haughey MSP said:

“I am incredibly grateful to Cathkin High for organising Friday’s event. It was great occasion to mark the team’s achievement, and I hope the entire squad and coaches are proud of their efforts.

“Winning the Scottish Schools senior shield is no mean feat, and it is certainly a cause for celebration.

“With Scotland’s absence at the World Cup, I’m sure Cathkin’s success can give the people of Cambuslang something to cheer about instead.”
