Mighty Mo Donate Artificial Pitch to Local Youths

Montrose FC have gifted a large portion of their old artificial 3G pitch to Montrose Youth FC for the creation of an all weather training surface at Kenny Park.

Bob McCombie, Chairman of Montrose Youth said, “We are extremely grateful for this very kind donation by Montrose FC and it will go a long way to improving the facilities we provide for our youngsters. We are a very active club and with 13 teams at ages from 8 to 17 years, including 3 girls teams, we are one of the biggest youth setups on the east coast of Scotland. The demand for floodlit winter training is therefore high and at present we only have a grass surface under the lights at Kenny Park, which can quickly become unplayable. Converting this to an all weather surface will make a huge difference to so many of our kids.

Derek Sim, Chairman of Montrose FC added, “We are delighted to see our old pitch go to such a worthy cause. We had been trying to sell it on, but it was proving both impractical and time consuming so instead we decided to make the offer to Montrose Youth. In the end it made sense that our turf should support the development of grass roots football in the town.

“We already have a good relationship with the club as not only do they use Links Park for some of their training and matches, they also provide us with Ball Boys and Girls for all our home games.

“I am sure our local residents will be delighted too, as the rolls of turf and bags of infill have become a bit of an eyesore in our car park since the pitch was lifted back in June.”
