After years of storing goal sets in containers, and building them up and attaching nets before every game and training session, the new roll on - roll off goals, now in use at Broomfield (Kenny Park), take just seconds to get into position.

Gary Greenwood, vice-chairman of Montrose Youth, told us: “We have two sets for the 11-a-side pitches and 2 sets for the two seven-a-side pitches and the whole club is benefiting. Training starts much quicker and the posts can be moved to suit training needs. Also, there are safety implications from not having to carry around the huge sections of metal goals and it’s safe to say the whole project has been a huge success.

“The club would like to say thank you to Angus Council, who provided substantial funding through their Community Grant Scheme. Without this assistance the project would not have been possible this year.”
