Reading this story, it looks as if Rosyth FC have been royally shafted!

It does, Stanza.

A possible solution could be to develop and use the civil service pitch and share the facility with the amateur club ?

Is my understanding right that they were given money to shift to Fleet Grounds only for Fleet Grounds to be given up for the building of the new school?

Edit - Just read it again and it sounds like a bit of a failure of the councillors to understand that moving IHS to Fleet Grounds would result in Rosyth being pushed out before they'd even moved in! Surely the solution could be to build on the community facility and integrate it into the school development?

Don't think the amateurs (my old team) play out of there anymore, I believe they joined with Aberdour?

There was also talk of the Civil Service Club closing due to lack of Civil Servants!

The old rec park was ideal, was lying empty for ages while the cooncil and Lidl seemed to do nothing.

Really good wee team, seen them loads of times, not always the biggest support but can draw a crowd, good organised club. but have been treated shabbily here, originally was supposed to be moving to AstroTurf with spectator facilities.

Now it looks like a shabby property deal, with RFC paying the price.

The ground was originally developed with money from the common good fund is my understanding, and the club are a real asset to the town.

After covid , councils will be skint, and will not be interested in relocating a football team.

I saw it was boarded up but thought that was due to the current situation .

Jings, what goes around comes around. I can recall the 1950’s when the Recs played just down from where the CS Club is now. There was a raised bank terrace on the east side and a covered bit opposite.
I think the record attendance post war was 4000. After they closed down me and my pals used to climb the fence for kick abouts, the goals were still here and sheep kept the grass down. The Fleet grounds were better but you often got chased by the groundsman if you ventured up there.

Can't remember the covered part, but remember the terracing, played on it many a time whilst going to youth club in the nissan hut!
Was there not some concrete tubes, like torpedoes, at the north end of the ground?
The fleet grounds, with turf like velvet, were a no go area, even though they were hardly used!

Yes indeed LA, I never knew what those big concrete tube things were for. Something left over from the war years perhaps. Maybe somebody has the answer?
The Fleet ground hockey pitches were a magnet, the goals were just the right size and there were nets! Luxury! Just get 10 minutes if you were lucky then the dreaded tractor would chase us.
