Premier League side Hearts and Edinburgh council have launched an initiative which aims to make children more active, tackle anti-social behaviour and promote numeracy and literacy.

The Heart of Midlothian Education and Community Trust was unveiled at St David's and Pirniehall primaries. Hearts players will be helping with grassroots development.

The Bank of Scotland has increased its support of the Scottish Schools'

Football Association's tournaments this season. A plate competition is to be introduced at under-13 level to give teams which are knocked out of the shield competition early the chance to play on for a national trophy.

Entry numbers for this season's competitions are up on last year, the SSFA says.

Scotland's most famous schools' football team has been honoured with a dinner in Glasgow. A "Wembley heroes" night was held to toast the Scottish schoolboys' team that beat England 5-4 in front of 78,000 fans in 1980.
