So I'll open with a starter for 10.

Where are Glenrothes playing next season ?

 

Edited for now.

I'll go out on a limb and say Warout Stadium.  We know that the prospective EOS clubs must have been asked about their grounds given that Glenrothes Strollers and Syngenta were rejected because their proposed grounds weren't up to the required standard or they had a lack of tenure.  I was at Warout Stadium a few weeks ago and the stand and other facilities seemed fine to me, and better than a number of other EOS sides.

I've been there earlier this year, it's a very decent ground for this level and the ground will be a good addition to the EOS.

There is certainly a lot of gossip I'll give you that.
Hence I ask the direct question for now.
Maybe someone can answer ?

Googling "Warout stadium dilapidation order" basically brings up PnB and the FifeFootball forum (which at a glance seems to have some of the same posting styles of those on PnB).

Then there's the article section from The Courier which only relates to stuff from 2017 https://www.thecourier.co.uk/tag/warout-stadium/

The stand at Warout is a genuine national treasure, it's a magnificent bit of Scottish new town architecture and it's the best non-league stand built since Gala's. The crowning glory is the bar, which is both surprisingly fresh yet absolutely original. I doubt there's a space like it anywhere in the country, it's like a film set and before long I bet it'll be hoaching with hipsters on pilgrimage from Stockbridge.

I've got f**k all to say about Glenrothes Juniors or the current concerns, I just hope eveything's fine because that's a special place to watch a game.

Have to agree.  I generally dislike big open venues like Warout with a track round the pitch, and I generally hate 60's architecture, but the stand at Warout is an exception.  With a bit of redevelopment you could make Warout a more intimate venue whilst preserving it long term.

Guys stop engaging with this buffoon and simply ignore him. He's obviously a troll who thrives on attention.

His continuous stream of newly registered accounts is a very obvious pattern and thus easy to spot. The only  possible effective response is none.

I believe it is known locally as "The Stadium of Shite"

For the benefit of Wee Fifer and others the record of Glenrothes Juniors is quite impressive over the last two decades compared to Thornton Hibs. 

I have placed in mustard the 4 occasions that Thornton have been higher over a 20 year period.

I think a lot of unfair criticism is being aimed at Glenrothes just because they have left the Junior fold.  With an influx of Kelty U20 players it will be very interesting to watch their revival in the EoS this coming season.

I take it this is fake news and that Glenrothes FC will continue to play at Warout?

I won't comment on the fake news angle but the Glens have no issues with Warout and as far as I am led to believe no financial issues either. 

Good to hear, and with the name change they appear to be embracing the move.

Always wondered where the name ‘Warout’ came from. Obviously there are a few streets around the stadium with that name. Is it the usual story of rewarding a councillor or is there something else?

Sure is right.  All original farms and steadings that were built on during the years have been remembered by having estates named after them.    See this old map http://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/place/20289.  Anybody that knows the stadium will know that the trees shown on the map under the name Warout are still there.   Have lived in the town for over 50 years.  It is definitely War- out

I was just looking through the old maps myself...

The older map from 1900ish showing the old Leslie branch line passing just south of the stadium now and heading to Markinch
