Over the past 5 years the committee at Duns Football Club have been working tirelessly to make ground improvements at New Hawthorn Park with a focus on ensuring the facility is something both the club and the local community can be proud of. The phased approach to these improvements has seen the upgrading of the playing surface and pitch drainage system, the installation of a covered disability viewing area and a seated stand, all within the confines of an enclosed ground. With these projects complete attention turned to improving the clubs changing and hospitality facilities with the changing element attracting funding support from the Scottish Football Partnership Trust.
Mark Dixon from the club said; “Following tireless work by our committee and local trades we have finally finished both changing rooms and our new hospitality area. We are now look forward to all of our affiliated teams, juniors and seniors using the facility and we hope when life gets back to a bit of normality the community as a whole can benefit from our new modern facilities and support the club moving forward. We would like to take this opportunity to thank The Scottish Football Partnership Trust for their valued support and funding.
