The FCS Association was formed to raise funds for an artificial playing surface to be installed at the Forfar Academy campus.

“The proposed pitch will be a fenced and floodlit 2G surface and will ensure that sport can be played when the current grass pitches are unplayable due to weather conditions,” explained Joseph Mitchell in his application for the award.

“This surface is designed to allow different sports to be played on it, making the pitch multi-purpose and ensuring the maximum utilisation in all weathers.

“It is intended that football, hockey, basketball and tennis can all be played on this surface, which will also provide a training facility for rugby and athletics.”

The school pupils will have access to the facility throughout the school day, while, during evenings, weekends and school holidays the facility will be open to various community clubs such as youth and amateur football, hockey and rugby clubs as well as the general public.

The estimated cost of providing the surface is in the region of £400,000, with a percentage of the cost being met by grant funding and over £100,000 having been pledged already.
