East Dunbartonshire Council has voted to accept the offer from Kirkintilloch Rob Roy FC to lease land at Parkburn, Donaldson Street, Kirkintilloch, behind the new Lairdsland Primary School, and work with them on an agreement which will see the local football team come home.
Scottish Liberal Democrat Cllr Susan Murray said “I was delighted that there was so much cross-party support for Kirkintilloch Rob Roy FC. Their plans clearly show the club will bring many health benefits to the local community as well as the boost to town of Kirkintilloch by bringing their team home! The club has worked hard for this and they are now on the home straight.”
Cllr Vaughan Moody, Joint Leader of the Council was behind this project all the way “This project is an excellent example of a project where the Council and a community organisation can work together to improve the health of our community by building on the heritage of Kirkintilloch Rob Roy and the community’s passion for football. I wish them every success in the future.”
