Lochee United, one of the oldest teams in Dundee, playing out of their home ground, Thomson Park, in the SJFA Midlands League, have lofty ambitions to climb into the professional SFA league pyramid. The improvements funded by McGill’s generous investment are essential in allowing the club to obtain an SFA licence and move into the Highland League should they win the midlands league and subsequent playoff match.
McGill is celebrating four decades in business this year, and decided to commemorate the milestone by investing heavily in the local Dundee community. The contractor has donated materials, time, and resources to the football team who start the new season with completely refurbished facilities and a new club website, in addition to significant groundworks which were undertaken in advance of fans coming back to the ground.
McGill Managing Director Errol Lawrie said, “McGill has a long-history of supporting our local community and we are proud to continue this tradition with this significant investment in the facilities at Lochee United. Much like ourselves, Lochee United are ambitious and passionate about what they do, our team are delighted to be able to support them.”
Lochee United Club Secretary Marc Stanton commented, “The work McGill have completed for us is outstanding. Our changing rooms are very impressive and have already become the talk of the league. Lochee United are going through a real transformation and have big ambitions, and McGill are helping us realise those. To all the guys at McGill, thank you, and we hope to see you at Thomson Park for every match.”
