On May 5th, Annan Rugby completed the purchase of its ground at Violetbank, Annan, having leased it since relocating there in 1999.
This marks the beginning of a new chapter for the club as ownership will allow it to move forward and develop its facilities to meet the future demands not only of the rugby club, but the wider community.
Club President Gary Coupland:
‘This has been a difficult year for many involved with Annan Rugby and securing the future of the club gives us something to celebrate as we hopefully move on from the effects of the COVID pandemic.
I would like to thank the Holywood Trust and Murray, Little and Knox Solicitors for their support in making this project a reality.
I would also like to thank all the Club members, for their support and fundraising over the past few years and in particular to Club project leads Fiona Latimer & Neil Moffat for their efforts.’
