2019/2020 season saw the club mark an important milestone in its history with the centenary of the move to Cliftonhill Stadium. To mark such an important event, a group of Rovers fans joined together to form the Cliftonhill100 group with the aim of running a number of initiatives to celebrate this important event. The first of the these was an excellent 4-month long exhibition on the history of Albion Rovers and Cliftonhill stadium hosted and co-organised by Summerlee Heritage Museum. This proved popular with thousands of people, young and old, visiting the exhibition. Cliftonhill100 also organised a very successful festival of football with 10 local primary schools taking part in a 7 a side round robin tournament. The day was supported by coaches and players from the club’s reserve squad. The group received Heritage Lottery funding to run a social history and arts programme where young people engaged in a number of activities to learn about the history of Albion Rovers and the town of Coatbridge 100 years ago.
The Community Trust and Cliftonhill100 have several members in common. As a result, we have worked together on a number of projects – most importantly the creation of a Community Hub out of the old portacabin.
The refurbished space with its new electrics, new flooring , freshly painted walls and new furniture will be a great asset for groups including school groups, youth teams and clubs.
