Plans include new stand and shop

icon money11 December ~ East Fife have become the first UK football club to use crowd funding to raise revenue for improvements to their ground. The scheme has generated £10,000 in its first week, after the club targeted small sums of money from a large number of people for three projects; replacing the club shop, extending the bar in the main stand to incorporate a cafe and, finally, to build a new 750-capacity stand behind one goal. In return the people who pledge money will receive a share in the club, among other benefits. Herald Scotland has more information.
