Gayfield Park is renowned throughout Scottish Football and far beyond for it’s quintessential style and unique location making it one of the most sought after away days and a familiar home-away-from home for our loyal supporters.
On the pitch our results speak for themselves, and as the only part-time team in the Scottish Championship the ongoing battle for the League title is going down to the 3 final games which is testament to the talented team of players and our experienced Management Team who are giving the town a real sense of pride and togetherness.
Away from Gayfield the Arbroath FC Community Trust has flourished and grown incorporating girls and boys at all levels. Everywhere you look around Arbroath you can see children wearing their Macron Arbroath kits with pride and passion.
Off the pitch our board of Directors have year-after-year been making sweeping improvements to Gayfield to make sure that our team can continue to play in our historic home for years to come.
Every close season we have been investing in upgrades, from replacing roofs on the main stands, to extending our current hospitality Suite and with the addition of the Champions Lounge and amazing supporters wall on it’s side, we have allowed our fans a chance to have their names and the names of past loved ones to forever live on.
Today we took the first steps of making one of the largest changes in our recent history, and we are excited to reveal these plans with you.
As many of you who have passed Gayfield this afternoon will have noticed, the main front wall, club shop and our historic turnstiles have been removed. These turnstiles from Baileys of Salford, we believe have been in place since 1925 when we moved to what is now Gayfield Park. To think of all the supporters who have entered the ground through these iconic and historic pieces of our history!
A brand new entrance is to built which will house a new large Macron Club Shop and office space, and to each side, new turnstiles will be installed which will allow fans an easier and faster entrance into the ground and with new dedicated disabled entry points as well, we hope we will welcome thousands of supporters into Gayfield for years to come.
Gayfield Park will always be our home, and we are working hard and investing to improve it and will continue to do so each season.
We are all excited and our supporters who pass every day will get to see the progress being made in real time!
C’mon the Lichties!
