Reborn Third Lanark unveil £5million plan to renovate Cathkin Park stadium in Glasgow's south side (© Daily Record)



The backers behind reborn Third Lanark have revealed a £5million blueprint to breathe new life into one of Scotland’s
fastest-growing communities.


The consortium are in talks over funding for the redevelopment of The Hi-Hi’s old Cathkin Park home. Proposals include
an all-weather pitch and floodlights at the ground in Glasgow ’s south side. Directors of the project want the renovated
stadium to be used for football and cricket – to tap into interest in both sports in nearby Govanhill.

Third Lanark AFC –currently top of the third division of the Greater Glasgow Amateur League –groundshare at Vale of
Clyde’s Fullarton Park in Tollcross. But they hope the multi-million pound plan will boost their ambitions of re-entering
the Scottish leagues.

Chairman Ian Alexander said: “We want to establish Third Lanark as a football and sporting club at the centre of the
local community. We’ve had meetings with Glasgow City Council regarding our proposals and they have been extremely
positive. The plans for a five-phase development would initially cost about £250,000 for a basic infrastructure. It’s a
five-year, £5million plan which would see a 2000-seater stand, smaller pitches and car parking built. We want to forge
close links with Govanhill. It’s the most racially diverse part of Scotland with more than 40 nationalities within a square
mile.”

Fellow director Pat McGeady – an uncle of former Celtic star Aiden – said: “We’ve got a supporters’ club, have launched
a football academy and have big plans.” The club plan to hold a mini football World Cup at Cathkin in August to link up
the nationalities in the area.

Third Lanark – founding members of the Scottish Football League – went under in 1967 after a sustained period of
mismanagement. Former stars include ex-Scotland manager Ally MacLeod, who began his playing career with the club.
We revealed last year how Thirds are being backed by a wealthy expat to get back into the big time.

John Sweeney grew up near Cathkin Park before emigrating to Canada, where he became a successful property developer.
A spokesman for Glasgow Life, who run the park on behalf of the council, said: “Dialogue continues with representatives
from Third Lanark, with the aim of developing a solution that will suit all interested parties and meet the wider need of
the local community.”

As the subject of the dear old Thirds has been raised, I might as well post a couple of publications I've had for 50 years or so, which may be of interest to any of the old faithful who are around.

The full documents can be seen on my Dropbox -

I once had a stack of matchday programmes too, until my mother binned them when I wasn't looking.

Just seen this thread, I'm a massive third Lanark fan even though I wasn't born till 1998
I support the current club from games to cups and even the restoration of The famous cathkin park, I've had the pleasure of meeting a few famous names throughout the third Lanark annual dinners
I have now started my own collection of Thirds memorabilia from programmes, strips and other bits
Third Lanark are back and are stronger than ever, glad to see people still talk about the team other than myself
P.S. Streapadair I love you stuff I wish I could own it mate amazing
