The men and women at Turriff RFC have spent months creating new facilities, following the increasing popularity of rugby in the town.
And now, the north east club has taken the next step forward after their pitch was painted and goals were erected at the Haughs ground.
The group came together, initially as friends who just enjoyed a recreational game, but as more people joined them, they began to organise coaching sessions and eventually became affiliated to the Scottish Rugby Union.
Now, after a year of discussions with Aberdeenshire Council and the Turriff Show committee, the pitch has been set up on the park grounds to create the community’s inaugural purpose-built amenities.
Club president John Hester said: “It’s fantastic to see our hard work paying off with the goal posts up and the pitch marked out.
“Our first home game will be on March 21 when the ladies team will play Fraserburgh followed by the men’s team also playing Fraserburgh – the first match will start at 12.30pm and, hopefully, the men will kick off at 2pm.
“Using the ground at the Haughs is great – it is such a beautiful place and to have somewhere to play is just brilliant.”
