ARDROSSAN Winton Rovers are appealing to any family members or friends of anyone who may have had their ashes scattered at the club's home ground.

The appeal comes after the club was granted approval by North Ayrshire Council to replace the grass pitch at Winton Park with a new synthetic surface. 

The club says it plans to create a lasting tribute to all those whose ashes were scattered at the ground, creating a permanent memorial after the current grass surface is removed and replaced.

The committee are aware that the club means a whole lot to many people within the community.

For some this may have meant their final wish being that their ashes were scattered at Winton Park where they made many fond memories.

While the committee are already aware of some contacts, they are hoping their appeal will encourage more people to get in touch.

Winton plan to create a plaque which dawns the name of all those who had their ashes scattered at the park.

This plaque will be brought out for every match played at Winton Park in the future.

They also hope to hold a service to pay further tribute to those lifelong fans at the beginning of next month, on a date yet to be confirmed.

The club are asking their appeal is shared as far as possible as they are aware many families may no longer be located in the local area.

Those who wish to pass details of a loved one on to the club is asked to contact vice-chairman John Sheehan on 07718896073 or by emailing
