The proposed sports facilities for Berwick

The recently-formed charity has identified land near East Ord on which it seeks to build new pitches, both grass and artificial, a running track and gymnastics centre.

One of the key components of the development is a 4,000 capacity football stadium, with Berwick Rangers as a potential long-term tenant.

Other elements could include an adjacent indoor arena and a full-size artificial pitch to be used as a ‘home’ pitch by other local teams and as a midweek training facility.

Trust chairman John Bell, who is also vice chairman at Berwick Rangers, believes the only way for the club to progress is to play within a broader community facility.
