The THIRD LANARK ATHLETIC CLUB are back ! We are preparing our proposal to hand in to Glasgow City Council for the long term lease of our old home ground, the atmospheric and magical Cathkin Park. This was our ground from 1903 - 1967 and was formerly the 2nd Hampden Park when Queens Park opened it in 1884. Please sign our petition if you would like to see our 99 year old 'new' football club return to our spiritual home and to play senior football there once again. We plan to rebuild the old players pavilion building exactly as it was and erect a new main stand in keeping with the original destroyed by fire in the late 1970s. We are already restoring the crumbling terracing and repainting the pitch wall and this old ground is slowly coming back to life. We need the public's support !! Thank you for your time.UPDATE OCTOBER 2011 In April 2011 we handed in our First Draft Proposal for 3rd Lanark's plans for Cathkin Park in the future.This was augmented by the first 3000+ signatures on our Online & our Paper Petitions. As of October we have amassed over 4000 signatures altogether. We are delighted with the response and good wishes from around the world. Thank you to every single person who has signed up so far. This old ground is vital to our rebirth as a sporting club so please keep sharing it and speading the word to the Third Lanark diaspora around the globe ! We are now preparing detailed costings and rebuilding plans for the old ground for Our Proposal For The Regeneration Of Cathkin Park Draft II. Thank you to all for your support.
