There must be a good few. For a start:

- A certain Patrick Gordon Stanton was farmed out to Bonnyrigg as a youth.

- An obscure one, but Keiran McGachie, the Bonnyrigg striker, is the nephew of former Hibs striker John McGachie.

Any others?

Darren Jackson lived in Bonnyrigg whilst he played for us and his daughter went to Lasswade primary at the time.
Andy McNeil played in goals for them a few years ago on loan.

Don't know but he definitely lived here for a while quite recently. His kids went to Bonnyrigg primary as well.

In bygone days, almost all the senior clubs used Juniors as feeder clubs for bringing through talent. Ours was Bonnyrigg Rose!!

It's where I was brought up Dave. Essentially a council estate stuck on the south side of Gorebridge. Next stop the borders. Great place as a kid as the playground was miles and miles of countryside without being as isolated as you might think.

It's funny Ian Brennan's been mentioned in this thread then a couple of posters start randomly talking about Birkenside. Ian and his wife owned a shop in Birkenside for years.

He played for my school team Darroch.
Went on to play for Whitburn, Rangers and Hibs.
Loved that he would come and play in a kickabout in the Meadows with all the old pals on a Sunday, thats when football was on a Saturday!

I think he was a Scottish junior internationalist whilst with the rose in the mid 70s. He wasn't the goalkeeper when they won the Scottish in 78, so I suspect he'd moved on by then.

I actually travelled through to Hampden in the early 70s to support them in the Junior Cup Final against Cambuslang Rangers.

A mate of mine, who played fitba with me for the work team, and good Hibbie, Davie McQueen played for them as did Another good Hibbie who could often be seen in the Hibsclub, Dode Henry, who I think was captain.

The Rose were full of Hibbies then, and it is unfortunate that they seem to have picked up a bit of an infestation recently,judging by all the pro jambo comments coming from their officials.

Is DDT still permissible?☺️

Actually Ian Paterson was in the team that won the cup in 66, he scored a hat trick in the replay! Don't know if he played in losing final in early 70's but doubt he was in team that won again, in 78 I think. Still, great to score 3 in a final at Hampden.
