Tranent

Tranent Football Club are a Scottish football club based in the town of Tranent, East Lothian. The team was promoted from the East of Scotland Football League Premier Division to the Lowland League in 2022, having moved from the junior leagues in 2018.

Despite leaving the junior leagues, the club has retained the term “Juniors” as part of their identity. Their home ground is Foresters Park and club colours are maroon and white.

The club’s greatest honour was winning the Scottish Junior Cup in 1934–35, defeating Petershill 6–1 at Ibrox Park in front of a crowd of 22,000. This remains the joint record margin of victory in a Junior Cup final. The club were also runners-up to Yoker Athletic in the 1932–33 final after a replay.

East Lothian Council Archives holds a selection of images of the team playing and posing with their trophies.
