Great-grandfather Bob Blaikie won the award for his inspired performances with Loanhead walking football team.
Running is banned in the pedestrian version of the game, which is part of Midlothian's Ageing Well initiative.
Mr BlaikIe, who is the oldest player in the team, said: "The ball rolls away from you quite a lot and sometimes you miss it completely.
"But you wouldn't believe how many people have dropped out due to injuries - players younger than me."
The father-of-three, who has eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, started playing in March.
The squad of 12 splits up and plays against each other and occasionally takes on another walking team from Penicuik.
Midlothian Council leisure chiefs came up with the idea to encourage elderly and injured players to get back on the pitch, and Bob never misses a match.
He said: "It's just a bit of camaraderie, a bit of fun."
