Community sports club Carnoustie Panmure Football Club (SCIO) celebrated a year of having charitable status last week. Nearly 500 players aged five to 45 play for the 22 teams from six clubs which form the umbrella club. The amateur not for profit clubs are: Carnoustie Panmure Youth; Monifieth Ladies; Carnoustie Panmure YM and Carnoustie Panmure Football Academy, and Carnoustie Panmure Juniors FC is run as a financially separate organisation for transparency. The Community Club was formed with assistance from the SFA Club Development Team to provide a player pathway and to enhance sports facilities in the area. It is hoped this will include children as young as three right the way through to their walking football programme. The club was also one of the first to be awarded ‘Legacy’ status in the SFA Quality Mark Legacy Award.
A spokesperson for the club said: “Our vision is to have a Community Club with modern facilities that provides a sporting chance to the entire community and will bring the club up to the same level as other towns across the country.”
