Jim Hume, Scottish Liberal Democrat MSP for South Scotland, has welcomed reports that two new 3G sports pitches could be sited in Peebles and Hawick by next year.
Mr Hume said:
“The Borders has a proud record of producing some of Scotland’s sporting greats. Having these new facilities will mean we might just open up the doors to our next generation of sporting heroes.
“Perhaps more importantly, it provides a fantastic place for people young and old to get involved in physical activity.”
