So much braindead vermin in society these days 😤 

Shocking - so many people give their time and money for the mindless few to trash their efforts. A great setup at Easthouses, hope it's all repairable and no further instances

What qere the costs involved for a 20 seat stand

No sure about costs but if its in same place as when they played ww might have visionary troubles of the pitch especially down the wings. It was at least 3 or 4 yards behind the pitch . I'd expect a gap be made in the pitch boundary fence.

Container with three sides cut away. Solid base to put it on obviously. Bit of joinery work. Bucket seats and a hand rail.

Doubt there much cost wise between that and the containers that i've seen holding 50 seats.

DIY and you're only looking at the transport costs for the container.

Probably find there's a few work yards that be happy for you to take the old container away.

Give Blantyre Vics a shout and ask them.

They've got a couple of cracking converted containers behind the goals.

It's to be repositioned when the ground is firm enough, still better than standing in the rain

Dedicated grant opportunities had become more limited recently, with SFA ceasing to fund Scottish Football Partnership, and Scottish Government ending most Sportscotland schemes.

However better news as UK Government open a new fund (£2M) specifically for Scottish semi-professional and grassroots clubs:

New round of UK Government investment opens for Scottish grassroots clubs | Football Development | News (scottishfa.co.uk)

Better still it now covers floodlights and improving grass surfaces as well as laying artificial pitches.

Quick-fire scheme with applications closing December 23rd for delivery by March 31st.

HibeeJibee - is there any chance of showing the full article here and on the other sections of P&B which may benefit grass roots clubs etc? Last time I tried to do something similar I was done for Spamming, would you believe!

I have posted the full text on the Midlands League thread and highlighted this part which seems particularly relevant:

"To coincide with the launch of the second phase of DCMS funding, the Scottish FA are also inviting expressions of interest from clubs across Scotland for future phases of funding. Any clubs who would like to explore opportunities for facility upgrade funding projects can express interest at: Scottish FA Grassroots Pitch & Facilities Fund."

In other words there's also a door opened for clubs to receive help after these new schemes , subject to matching certain criteria. It's not just the current period. If there's enough response from clubs then the SFA are clearly up for getting further funding from the UK Government for the years further ahead too.
