Sunnybank Elite FC Chairman Craig Sutherland:
It gives me great pleasure to announce that after weeks of positive discussions with members of the Committee at Inverurie Loco Works Football Club, Sunnybank Elite have agreed to become an Inverurie Locos team from the start of season 2019/2020.
Our 2005 team will play under the Locos banner for the next 5 years taking then right through to U19s playing in the ADJFA. The name change will take place at the end of this season once the SYFA and ADJFA have both been contacted.
The boys will play their home games at Harlaw Park, Inverurie, home of the Locos on a Sunday from season 2019/2020.
The team will wear Locos kit from the start of the new season. The coaches will remain in place for the duration of the 5 year plan.
We aim to have a parents evening at Harlaw Park in the near future to discuss the plan in detail with everyone concerned.
This is a massive opportunity for the club to be able to progress not only the reputation we already have of being a very good footballing team but also everything that Inverurie Locos can provide us with as a group. Locos are the perfect club for us to have the link up with due to the fact they are a very family and community oriented club which is what we are at present.
This is a massive day in the progression of our club and I feel that joining up with such a great club will help us all achieve what we started the club in the first place for. One Club.
