EOS Grounds for Optimism

Recommended Posts

Bit of a shame as it was the most elevated part of Old Shielfield, but Tweedmouth dug out their west bank today, making space for their new permanent pavilion.

More skill and probably more entertainment on show there, this afternoon, than next door...

Some good work going on at Tweedmouth. They are clearly working hard towards getting licensed.

In the shorter term it's about providing EOSL-compliant facilities after the move to groundshare Shielfield Park collapsed.

Toilets, pie hut and interim pavilion have made a real difference, this will finish it off IIRC.

passed the half demolished remains of Meadowbank today. 

There's a perfectly good, and EOSFL acceptable set, of floodlights by the 3G pitch that Leith Athletic used- it's a shame no one at the Council thought to reuse them elsewhere for the good of football in Edinburgh. 

My thought was they could be re-erected at the Council owned ground at Paties Road. 

Decided to email the council about this - got a reply saying they plan to recycle the floodlights on a separate project within the city. (assume that means all the floodlights as I didn't mention the 3G ones versus the big ones)

Are the stadium pylons not the originals from late 1960s? Some meccano challenge to dismantle those after 50yrs rust and deterioration and reassemble elsewhere - or a very oversize load...

I didn't know hotels/student accomodation needed a set of football floodlights.... :rolleyes:

I always thought Whitehill should buy and re-erect a couple of the big ones to put Fergie Park on the map. In your face Bonnyrigg scum!

Not sure where to post this as there are a number of threads covering similar topics but good luck to all the clubs this week who have applied for licences.  The more licenced clubs, the better as far as I'm concerned.

I'm sure lots of people have put in work at various clubs and hopefully they are rewarded with a licence.

Todays Herald, real not Weegie, covers Little Kerse putting in planning permission for the building of a stand - mention of Syngenta looking to move there but nothing concrete.

I’m sure there were plans unveiled for little kerse in partnership with East Stirlingshire a few years back. Good news if they are going to be improving the facility there and a statement of intent from syngenta going forward?

Article mentions the Shires plans but effectively says that their move to TFS has ruled out their plans - also makes play of the fact that current Junior, EoS and SPFL clubs use it as a training facility.

Nothing to do with syngenta, more likely pennies will use it in the juniors at some point

Not EOS but over in the SOS at Lochmaben (they currently groundshare with Mid-Annandale):

 

 

 

A couple of photos of the clubhouse down at Whitehill Park Lochmaben. Should be ready for next season.

Love the tiling. Looks a much more attractive and atmospheric place than the 3G cage in Lockerbie.

Presumably Haddington now meet all the licensing requirements apart from floodlights?

Looks like clubs have received their defibrillators as there was lots of similar tweets to this one at the weekend!
