Clyde Football Club builds new pitch and facilities

Clyde Football Club is to expand its stadium by building a new pitch and host of facilities including two more seven-a-side synthetic sports pitches.

The 3,800sq m project at Broadwood Stadium in Cumbernauld will cost £6 million and be built by Mansell.

Managing director in Scotland George Hood said: "This further strengthens our portfolio in the central belt and will be available for use by the whole community."

Christine Pollock, an executive director at North Lanarkshire Council, said the local authority was "committed" to delivering good sports and recreational facilities.

Councillor Jim Logue said the project would tie in with the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014 and the 2011 International Children's Games Lanarkshire.

"The sports development will help SportScotland achieve its ambition of getting more people involved in physical activities on a more regular basis."
