During the close season, Elgin City F.C. embarked on an ambitious capital project part-funded by the SFP designed to improve spectator welfare provision and changing accommodation for its vibrant youth and community teams at Borough Briggs. The new building, which includes toilets for male, female and disabled spectators also provides two changing rooms and a referees’ changing area which will certainly enhance the experience of supporters coming to the stadium on match days, as well as allowing the club’s community players better access to the adjacent natural grass pitch at Lesser Borough Briggs.
Graeme Sutherland, Scottish FA North Region Manager commented “There has been a power of work carried out over recent years to improve the club both off the pitch in terms of its actual physical environment and this has been matched by efforts to provide more opportunities to play the game across the local community via the club’s ever expanding community programme. The new changing rooms will help support the club in better utilising Lesser Borough Briggs and to facilitate the continued growth within the club’s youth and community sections.”
Graham Tatters, Club Chairman, added “On behalf of Elgin City F.C., the community footballers, all the home and visiting supporters, both male and female, I would like to thank The Scottish Football Partnership for the financial assistance in support of our new build facilities block. A much needed building only made possible with that assistance – thank you.”
