Kirkintilloch Rob Roy New Stadium

Recommended Posts

aye were loaded to f**k mate but still got priced out the market for sawyers :) aye am serious.. hate seeing history disapear..if i had the cash the vale be done up so you lads could stay dry.. the away end at kilbirnie is best view in the ground. a wee shed behing goals where we stand. join the 2 stands together and put a wee stand like talbots new one for the away end..job done haha

also brick walls right round,, the fencing does my nut in..

I am about the same age as you. God willing we will both be around in 40 or 50 years time.

We grew up with the old grounds, the unique toilets, the dodgey terracing, the old stands and enclosures we look at them with fondness and happy memories. The future supporters will look at it and feel nothing, they will mock scoff at the older grounds that are not very well looked after,older junior grounds will be alien to them and unappealing and that's the truth of it.

lol true.

Rob Roy really had no option, just look at the likes of Clyebank sharing Yoker, theyve only played once in 6 weeks and that was at Petershhill cos oh they have 4g lol

I much prefer grass but any new build was always going to be a hared facility and 4g.

yeah but it will be our carpet and we will enjoy watching our team play on a surface that is a million times better than what our pitch has become.

Like a said - as long as yer happy but ye don't convince me.

The location of the new stadium is also the best place we could of got it. Right next to the canal and Marina and an area of town that has undergone massive regeneration and much closer to the main street.

Not really buying into the "KRR had no other option" stuff either.

They chose to sell their ground & the social club to property developers before they finalised an alternative ground.

It wasn't like Glencairn being forced to move for an essential project.

How do you square this scenario with the tax payers in the rest of the East Dunbartonshire area (who may have no interest whatsoever in KRR) if a substantial amount of their money is being used to assist KRR ?

A baw is made from leather , leather comes from a coo , coos eat grass. Moral of the story ; Fitba' should be played on grass.

Fitba can be played on a table ( table fitba ) , fitba can be played on computers , fitba can be played on grass , fitba can be played on concrete in the street , fitba can be played on ash ,fitba can be played on sand, fitba can be played on Fifa approved 3rd or 4th generation pitches .The moral of the story is fitba can be played anywhere thats why its the beautiful game ;) .

But its not being used to assist Rob Roy juniors. The money pumped into this by the council will be for all the other activities and sports clubs that can use it. The Roy have put in the majority of the cash for this btw . The feedback from the council and public has been positive by all accounts.

'Council Leader Rhondda Geekie believes the Community Sports Club and its facilities will
be a fantastic resource for the area. She said, “This innovative sports project is great
news and I welcome the innovative approach taken by Kirkintilloch Rob Roy in developing
such a community facility along with other local sports clubs'

I see.

Well, I hope it all goes to plan for the club and I'll look forward to visiting the new facility in due course.

(Just as long as you don't expect us to hoover the new carpet after the ninety minutes).

From EDC:

'Our capital budget commitment is subject to the whole funding package coming together and I hope this commitment enables the remaining funding support to be finalised so that this new facility can become a reality.'

Hopefully not anoher 'Kirkintilloch Arts Centre' style project where the grants required didn't materialise.
