New Glenelg football pitch cheer

The Oban Times - - Community News -

GLENELG am­a­teur football club has un­veiled its new pitch, fol­low­ing a £75,000 boost.

The vil­lagers, who play in the Skye and Lochalsh league, re­ceived the fund­ing from the Cap­i­tal One ‘Grounds For Im­prove­ment’ cam­paign last year, af­ter be­ing se­lected from more than 1,000 ap­pli­cants by Eng­land in­ter­na­tional Ian Wright and Bri­tain’s old­est Sun­day League foot­baller Derek May. The money was used to in­stall state of the art drainage and level the field at Av­enue park.

Glenelg res­i­dent Erica McDon­ald, who sub­mit­ted the ap­pli­ca­tion on be­half of the football club, said: ‘ We’re de­lighted with our new pitch, which was in dire straits but thanks to the sup­port from Cap­i­tal One we now have a pitch to be proud of. It looks fan­tas­tic and gives fans and the wider com­mu­nity some­thing ex­tra spe­cial to look for­ward to in the com­ing sea­son.’
