The debut was a successful one as local rivals Hamilton Acas were seen off 3-2, thanks from a double by A.Kemp and one by N.McMaster. The pitch had a few flaws, it had drainage problems which often left it rutted and muddy. The club would have to look for a new ground as there was a demand to build houses on the site.

As of today, the current site has a number of houses situated on the land, the local Aqua Tech leisure centre is also in close proximity.
