KHS Memories Project

Hockey

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all parents and supporters of school hockey for their efforts with the Kelso Races fundraiser this week.  All donations were fully appreciated and helped us to raise nearly £900, which is a huge boost to our efforts to ensure a full season of fixtures, home and away.

Kelso 16/17s Football Report

This week, Kelso travelled to play the unbeaten, reigning champions Duns.  Pre-match photos were taken in front of the new stand at New Hawthorn Park of both teams and high quality pictures were taken during the game, they are available to see on Duns FC’s Facebook page.

Kelso started well, applying the pressure on the Duns back line and had a couple of early corners.  Apart from that, there wasn’t any other happy moments in the game for the visitors as Duns ran out 6-0 winners.  There was a couple of good individual performances in the away side but, no-one can do it on their own.  Kelso will hope to bounce back from this very disappointing defeat when they face Lauder away from home on Sunday and get their Season up and running.  Report by Rhys Lawrence (S5)  Team photo attached below.
