First Pint in 10 Years!
A new chapter has opened in the life of Ross Sports Centre
this week. Ross Town FC, led by Peter Gilmour have received
backing from the FA and the Football Foundation to improve
the facilities there. There are plans for an extension,
improved changing room facilities, a spectator stand, floodlights
and the refurbishment of the car park. These plans are for
the benefit of all, not just Ross Town FC and Peter would
like to hear from anybody who would like to help in any
way. If you would like to become involved in this project,
please contact Peter on 08707 650601.
well as improvements to the sports facilities, there is
also the social aspect of the Sports Centre. The bar will
be open on match days and the room will be available to
hire for wedding receptions and parties. There will also
be a new sound system and a wide screen television installed.
The first pint to be poured in approximately ten years was
welcomed by Mark Ravenshill, pictured below with Peter Gilmour,
