East Fife plan new stadium complex

New Bayview Stadium
East Fife hope to move away from their New Bayview home

By Jim Spence

East Fife have announced ambitious plans to move to a new state-of-the-art stadium at a cost of almost £5m.

The Second Division side want to relocate from New Bayview to a 3,000-capacity ground one mile away from their present location.

The proposal will include a hotel and supermarket complex and is set to go before planners in the next few days.

"At a time of doom and gloom this is a good news story for Scottish football," said chairman Sid Columbine.

A fourth generation artificial surface would be laid and there would be a similar synthetic training pitch, as well as a grass training pitch.

The facilities would be available for community use.

There are also plans to include a 'college-type' facility at the new development, which Columbine hopes will be ready in two years.

"The ground is there and we are ready to start right away if we get planning permission," he added.
