A group of young people taking part in the Prince’s Trust programme have transformed a number of rooms at Peterhead Football Club.

Members of Team 34 completely refurbished the rooms underneath the club’s East Stand into a community and youth space and gym at Balmoor Stadium.

To celebrate their success and mark the completion of the renovation works, the team invited members of their families and Jim McNally and Nat Porter from the club to see the finished project.

The visitors were able to have a look around the space and see pictures taken before, during and after the redesign work. A spread of food and drinks was also prepared for the guests.

The team members undertook all of the renovation work in a two week period, which included painting, putting up walls and cleaning the space.

Commenting, Prince’s Trust team leader Tev Warrender said: “It was two weeks of really hard work and planning.

“It was all about getting them to work as a team and then show the community what we could do.

“We had to plan a fund-raiser so we held a quiz night at the Clerkhill Inn and went out to the community to ask for materials to be donated.

“We got a huge support from the community and the club.”

Peterhead FC manager Jim McNally commented: “The team should be really proud of themselves. The transformation in this place in phenomenal and it just goes to show the hard work they’ve put into this.”
