Duns Football Club continue to formalise their plans for the installation of a new grandstand.

The site for the structure was part of the original ground works plan (pictured above) with drains etc laid at that stage. After being awarded a generous grant from the Blackhill Windfarm Community Fund last year the club were able to purchase all the required steelwork.

The purchase of course was made locally from John Thorburn and Sons in Duns. This follows the the club’s commendable ethos of doing as much of its business locally.

The club is now putting plans in action to actually start work as soon as the weather becomes a bit kinder and the required permissions are obtained from Scottish Borders Council.
