Clare Junior Soccer Club Bridge United will commence with the redevelopment of their grounds at Sixmilebridge this summer.
Major drainage works on the main pitch and training pitch will be carried out in addition to the building of a clubhouse. The development also includes car park surfacing and construction of boundary walls and fencing to pitches and grounds.
Bridge Utd says the new clubhouse and changing facilities will be made available for use by other community groups and organisations.
A spokesperson told The Clare Herald: “In the coming weeks the club will be distributing their development brochure providing further details of their plans. It will also offer an opportunity for the community to offer their support for these much needed improvements by entering the clubs monthly development draw with a contribution of €10 per month.”
