SALTCOATS Victoria are gearing up to improve facilities at Campbell Park thanks to help from Kilwinning Rangers.

The club have acquired large containers from the Buffs old ground Abbey Park and are now looking to utilise them to improve their home ground.

The containers consist of larger changing room facilities which Vics say will improve the overall the overall match day experience for players.

But transporting the large containers will come at a cost, so the Saltcoats club have created an online fundraiser in a bid to raise the cash required.

That will allow them to move, re-furbish and then maintain the new facilities.

Club vice chairwoman and treasurer Miriam Wyllie has thanked the Buffs for their generosity to Vics.

She told the Herald: “Kilwinning Rangers have been so helpful in offering these containers to us.

“It means a lot to a club like this.

“We haven’t been able to fundraise in our usual way, and we need to improve the facilities for our players.

“We’re keen to do a lot. Ideally, we would like to build new dressing rooms but that would take a lot of money.

“Unless one of the committee members were to win the lottery, you can’t see where the massive investment required would come from.”

Vics are hoping to raise enough cash, with a target of £5,000 for their project to see it completed.

Miriam sees the fundraiser as an “investment in the community” as the club pull together with even players chipping in to help during the coronavirus crisis.

She added: “It shows we are all in it together.

“There is a lot of friendship in the community. A lot of the players have a trade and have offered to help.

“One of the boys has been out with a trimmer to the cut grass.

“ It’s about extending the longevity of the club and the players have bought into that.”
