Give Lennoxtown the all-weather football park it needs

This petition had 1,224 supporters

Lennoxtown is a small yet thriving community, with an abundance of local community football teams, although is without an all weather football facility.

There is currently over 200 kids attached to Campsie Football Club, ranging from primary 1 to under 21 level, and also senior teams at amateur level within the community. Lennoxtown does have 3 grass football parks, all of which are vastly overplayed, with poor facilities and suffer a lack of maintenance! And when it rains, the poor drainage means that parks are regularly called off, meaning postponement of matches, and yet more overplaying on them when the spring comes to allow for midweek matches in the lighter nights, to catch up on postponed games.

The introduction of an all-weather football facility within Lennoxtown would combat many issues faced by the local community clubs, and could also greatly benefit the local schools for sports days or gym sessions, and indeed the local community as a whole, to provide local training facilities for the hundreds of children, young persons & adults attached to local football and sporting clubs!

East Dunbartonshire Council refuse to acknowledge this as an issue, citing that Kirkintilloch and Bishopbriggs have adequate all-weather facilities. What they also refuse to acknowledge is that Lennoxtown as an individual community has over 12 individual football team age groups, and with the current facilities within other east Dunbartonshire areas being booked by their local teams, Lennoxtown & Campsie FC in particular are left to ponder "only if"

"Only If" is no longer acceptable! Lennoxtown needs an all-weather football facility, and we need your voice to be heard! For the future of all Campsie Football Clubs, grassroots football and the Lennoxtown Community!
