It’s great to see our support for Crosshouse Community F.C. making such a difference to football being played.
The club who have taken on ownership of the clubhouse and football pitches at Lindsay Park on an asset transfer from East Ayrshire Council approached the SFP Trust in April of this year to ask for support in improving the drainage on their 11 v 11 pitch.
Only 2 matches had been played on the pitch since September 2017 and the investment in a new localised drainage system supported by the SFP Trust has meant games will be on this year.
Charlene McClelland from the club said “The photographs show our 04s team playing against Ayr Boswell 04s at the weekend. We’ve had a tonne of rain this week and games went ahead. The pitch improvement works have clearly fixed the drainage problem we had, as this time last year we wouldn’t have been able to host any games as our pitches would’ve most definitely have been off due to them being water logged. On behalf of everyone at Crosshouse Community Football Club we can’t thank The Scottish Football Partnership Trust enough for its help in covering the cost of this vital drainage work”.
