Coldstream Football Club has been awarded nearly £19,000 by Scottish Borders Council to help with improvements to facilities at Home Park.
The £18,872 grant from SBC’s Landfill Communities Fund will go towards the club’s ambitious £53,000 improvement project.
The club already has permission to erect a wooden perimeter fence around two sides of the top pitch at Home Park and make a host of other upgrades in order to comply with Scottish Football Association licensing criteria.
Improvements to changing facilities in the pavilion, the erection of a pitch fence and a covered enclosure for 100 spectators behind the top goal are among a number of other alterations planned.
The changes are designed to create the image of an enclosed football ground on match days and are required in order for the club to retain its SFA membership.
A spokesperson said the club are aiming to begin the work next summer at the end of the current football season.
