The footballing, or rather community asset, transfer was agreed by the Communities committee earlier this year.
It will see the club lease the all-weather pitches and adjacent changing rooms for a nominal sum with an option to buy the facilities in the future. Provost Oswald said: “This is great news for the town and everyone associated with Carnoustie Panmure FC.
“The club plays a vital role in the promotion, support and development of sport in Carnoustie and beyond and I am certain this asset transfer will be of enormous benefit to our community.”
Those future plans, which have overwhelming local support, include the upgrading of the all-weather facilities to include a 3G surface with shock pad, which increases the playability and safety of an artificial turf pitch and enhances its lifespan.
Carnoustie Panmure FC is a community sports club and registered Scottish Charity.
It has 22 teams and almost 500 players aged between five and 45-years-old.
Following the community asset transfer the Gowfers plan to introduce an over 35’s team, walking football for pensioners and also lower the minimum age for youngest players to three years.
Other plans in the making are a midnight league for teenagers and sessions for disabled groups with fully qualified coaches.
