St Cadocs Youth Club SCYC started this petition to The people of Newton Mearns, East Ren and all who advocate for child development through sport

Please help this overgrown St Cadoc’s school football team evidence the huge support in both the local community and sporting community to take on the dilapidated and largely unused site of Crookfur Playing Fields in the heart of Newton Mearns.


St Cadoc's Youth Club is made up of 1000 children, volunteer coaches and parent helpers from 26 local schools all of whom have had heavily reduced playing and training time due to a lack of available facilities while Crookfur Playing Fields remain largely redundant.


The club proposes to self-fund the development of 2 all-weather pitches and multi-use sports courts for basketball, tennis etc all of which will be available for community to use free of charge and to let our kids play.

This proposal accords with East Renfrewshire council’s playing pitch strategy and we are grateful for their support and the opportunity to enhance local sports provision and improve inclusively. All groups with pre-Covid lets will continue to be accommodated free of charge, as will the East Renfrewshire education department and all local Personal Trainers to ensure our fantastic new facility benefits our entire community.
