Being part of a team helps build confidence and togetherness in youngsters and the Boys’ Brigade is the perfect setting to instil these strengths.

Thomas Forgie from Falkirk was part of a winning squad of boys who lifted the Battalion league trophy in 1947 with the 7th Falkirk Company of the Boys’ Brigade.

The team above shows - back, from the left: D McCoustra, H Fender, A Smith, A Muir, J Stevenman, R Kirkwood, Mr J Robertson, J Bowes. Front: T Forgie, R Haston, R Scott, J Kemp, G Thomson.

Mr Forgie said: “In 1951-52, 7th Falkirk also won the cup and my brother David scored two exceptional goals leading to the win.

“Unfortunately he doesn’t have a photograph of this win, but we all remember it well.
