Open Goal Broomhill FC make Broadwood home

Open Goal Broomhill FC is delighted to announce Broadwood stadium as its new home. 

Kicking off from the 2022/23 Lowland League campaign, Open Goal Broomhill will host its home matches at the 8,000 all seater stadium. 

Club representatives have been working to secure a new home ground and are thrilled to sign the lease agreement with North Lanarkshire council. 

This move signifies another milestone in Open Goal Broomhill’s exciting journey, and is a further step towards the long term aims of the club. 

Open Goal Broomhill FC’s Head Coach, Simon Ferry, said: “As soon as we started discussing home grounds, I made it known that Broadwood stadium would be my first choice from a footballing point of view. It’s a big 3G pitch in great condition which will be conducive to the way we want to play. 

“We are looking forward to our first home game of the season and hopefully there is a big support for the team from our incredible Open Goal fans. They have been a massive part of this journey from the beginning and we want to continue to break new ground and make history with them.”

Councillor Danish Ashraf, Convener of People and Communities with North Lanarkshire Council, said: “Broadwood is very much at the heart of the community in Cumbernauld and this agreement between Open Goal Broomhill further enhances the wide range of activities the stadium has to offer. 

“This partnership and Simon Ferry as the new manager represents a fresh chapter in the clubs history and we look forward to sharing that journey with Open Goal Broomhill FC for years to come. 

“I wish the club every success at Broadwood and look forward to seeing the team play come July. We’ll be cheering on with the club and listeners to the podcast alike.”

“This innovative approach to football is what the future of the game looks like, and we are delighted to be part of this exciting new project.”

Open Goal Broomhill FC’s General Manager, George Fraser, said: “This is a fantastic move for the club and we are delighted to have secured a facility of this calibre. 

“Broadwood is the perfect place to call home as we embark on a new era for the club. 

“We would also like to thank everyone at Alloa Athletic for the accommodation they have given us and wish them all the best for the future.”
