Unless it's under a compulsory purchase order, you don't have to drool at the first developer that flashes a bit of leg as you walk past.

Take Pollok for example, an absolutely fantastic  pitch and set up but no covered toilets for fans, unless hey ask and are pointed into the club house.  Its all about what you do within your means in your area?

A different issue - if someone offered to buy Newlandsfield, they're not obliged to say yes just because there are no quality crappers! Clubs can say no if the deal is a bad one.

And Lok have had a number of offers over the years to buy Newlandsfield but have never bitten!

Got to be honest here but Huntershill is not fit to be a junior venue. Nice facility for the good people of East Dunbartonshire to make use of, but not for a Junior Club to call its home.
 
It's a public park that anyone can get access to, and with regards to supporters, there are zero facilities that can be accessed. Anyone can view the games from the grass to the rear or from the road behind the goal lol. Absolutely laughable!! It would be nice to have a Bovril/coffee, or a pie, or even a cheeky wee beer before or after the game lol. Not a thought for the supporters of Rossvale's flagship senior team.
 
In terms of viewing of the game, how hard could it have been to have a little raised concrete area for the supporters within the park (inside the fenced area) to get a better view?? And a small cover for supporters to view the game in all weathers?? After all, it is an all weather surface isn't it??
 
It's a brand new facility, supposedly built with Rossvale in mind as main users / tenants. Surely the above points, or at least some could have been taken into account??
 
With regards to Gartcairn. It's not too much better. However, at least they have covered over the fencing with Club colours and the odd advert here n there to avoid the public outside the pitch viewing the game. They have tried to give it a wee bit of identity.
 
The ground looks as if it belongs to a club. That's what I'm getting at here!!
 
If this is what Clubs would choose as a home with so called facilities available in all weather, then you can keep it, because all of the other basics have been forgotten about with regards to the people attending the games!!
 
I don't see how you can't have a bit of both. Just look at how well Renfrew in the West and Blackburn in the East (to name a few) have managed to include all in there facilities.
 
 
 
 
 

Rossvale had no input to the build of the complex as it is for the community and several other clubs use the facilities open to them.
Very early days for our new venture to be slated so early, but that is what happens on these forums.
You try to move forward and improve your state within the juniors and we are at present in discussions with EDC to look at ways to improve what we can or are allowed to do on match days.
All we can do as a club is look and listen to different opinions from the local people and visiting supporters and try our best to provide a venue suitable for our requirements on match days.
All we ask is for time and patience please, we are a small group who are willing to make the most of this opportunity given to our club.

RT-76 - I believe the total cost was not far off £10m ... with a lot of that due to the state of the ground underneath of course. With that said - how much say does Rossvale have in the letting of the facilities and do you pay for them yourselves ??

One good thing about Huntershill if the local EDC do go for an upgrade. There's plenty of room to carry out any work.

Yeah we pay all the teams at rossvale pay for lets ? We do not have any say who gets what lets during the week unfortunately.
The juniors train one night on the new pitch and one on the older smaller pitch at Huntershill.
Not ideal with 24 bodies and assisting the amateur clubs keepers also.
Things may change training wise soon but have to just get on with it.

is it an arms length company then ? Probably needs to be with so much public money invested. Hopefully they'll be co-operative with regards to bringing on facilities as you go on. Wish you all the best
