Let me clarify the situation with regards to Huntershill. Rossvale had no input in the design of it as did any of the other Clubs represented. The Council basically said they were paying for it and they would design it. We were brought in shown the plans told that's what was being built, take it or leave it.

It did have significantly more viewing area in the plans, however there were major changes between being shown the plans and it being built none of which any of the Clubs knew about. At the one and only design meeting the Clubs were brought into, numerous things were brought up such as not enough car parking spaces, which has proven us correct, access to the site is too open meaning dog walkers let their dogs foul the grass, a cafe should have been put in, a physio suite built as a number of physios wanted to rent the facility.

There were a number of money making opportunities offered by the Clubs, which would have kept pitch costs down for the kids. The facility is losing money, as what the Clubs told the Council would happen has happened. The tennis courts are lying empty, with only occasional use. They cost £150,000 to build. The running track cost £800,000 to build, about £150,000 more than the building of the new park, and the refurb of the old one combined. The track gets used for two hours approx on a Tuesday and Thursday, and an hour on a Saturday. 

If the Club could afford its own facilities it would move, however an acre of land is about a million pounds in Bishopbriggs, if you could find a venue suitable which would allow you floodlights to make it a viable option. When most Junior teams were started land was significantly/proportionally cheaper or in some cases gifted. Building work and costs again were not at the levels they are now as they weren't tied in with strict building regulations. Therefore it was easier to build a ground then. 

Loretto, at Low Moss for instance is owned by Caledonian estates and when phase 4 of the Bishopbriggs by pass is built, that area will be re zoned, and those pitches will I'm sure go. 

Add to the purchase of the land, a minimum of £1. 5 million, then we could maybe move. 

Ultimately to answer the issues, Rossvale had no say in Huntershill, as like all Councils they just want you to pay your money whether it is sub standard or not. The person who was in control of the build has no design experience and doesn't know anything about football. 

So I hope that clears that up with the actual facts. I think the Juniors have done rather well considering the limited resources we have to work with. 

Good post

Another fact is that if the buckie drinking hail hail mob that follow the Rochs had paid in to the game at Huntershill then maybe Rossvale would have the cash for some terracing
We ( the 1920 a small section of a big st Rochs support ) never paid in due to the fact we never entered the ground but since your not aware of the facts then there is no need or point revisiting this as it was discussed enough at the time .

Arthurlie 4-2
Cumbernauld 3-2
Dalry 1-0
Benburb 2-1
Kello 1-0
St rochs 2-1
Rossvale 5-0
Glencairn 3-1

That would be our fifth 3-1 scoreline in a row if you're correct (for and against us).

Can't see anything other than a Glencairn win tomorrow
I hope you're correct, but we're expecting a tough game. They all are in this league.

Agreed every game will be tough but I think Glencairn cumbernauld and Rossvale might just be a cut above the rest

Approx 500 words, if you can't do twenty words a minute its time to go back to typing school. So about 25 minutes + thinking time = six hours.
