Th­reave Rovers are a step closer to be­ing handed the run­ning of a Cas­tle Dou­glas foot­ball pitch.

The club has been given the go-ahead by Ste­wartry Area Com­mit­tee to lease Birk­land Park for 25 years.

The mat­ter will now have to go to the coun­cil’s pol­icy com­mit­tee on Septem­ber 14 for fi­nal ap­proval.

Th­reave plan to up­grade the pitch and pro­vide chang­ing and stor­age fa­cil­i­ties as well as a car park.

The project will cost £ 21,600. Cas­tle Dou­glas Com­mon Good Fund will meet to­mor­row to con­sider whether or not to al­lo­cate £10,000 to the project for the cost of a fence.
