Carnoustie Panmure FC’s newly awarded charity status brings the £20,000 target for new state-of-the-art pitches into reach.
An estimated cost for the upgrade is £300,000 with two new fields for rugby and football aimed at benefiting the whole community with schools and local groups able to use the facilities.
A club spokesman said: “Now that the the club has charitable status, we will be using that to access further funding streams.”
“We will be having further meetings with Angus Council in the weeks ahead. The majority of the funding is expected to come from Sportscotland and the Scottish Football Partnership.
“The current estimate of the amount the club needs to raise itself is around £20,000 and the hard work of raising that has begun.
“Already we’ve been promised donations from the Angus Trophy Centre and the Carnoustie Crime Prevention Panel.”
“We are also looking to work with Angus Council to establish a ‘midnight league’ for local youths in the evenings, which will answer the ‘there’s nothing for the youth to do in the town’ statement we hear.
To help bring in the funds Panmure FC are offering businesses free advertising on their website in return for donations offered to the cause.
