Duns Football Club has now received planning permission from Scottish Borders Council for the grandstand at its New Hawthorn Park pitch.

With a couple of conditions still to be clarified the club is on course to get cracking in the closed season to get the structure erected.

The steel for the grandstand has already been purchased and plans are in place, especially now that the weather has at last been better, letting the ground and stand site to dry out.

This is the latest work being carried out upgrading the facilities which are at the site of the old Berwickshire High School.
