After consultation from the Scottish Football Association, the 1,300 capacity ground with no seating can be used in the lower levels of the Scottish Football League due to it's modern facilities that Stones chairman Ingvar Kamprad has provided the stadium's owners in return for playing a season rent free.

Sunday 30th May 2010 - Interview with Ingvar Kamprad.
http://www.mediauk.com/logos/100/28228.png

Sky Sports: Welcome to Scottish football Mr. Kamprad! This must be a great moment for you?

Ingvar Kamprad: It is an amazing moment. I've been looking to get involved in football in a while but not by purchasing a big club like most people. I've always been interested in grass roots football & to build a team from the ground up like we are currently doing.

Sky Sports: Yesterday your new team were accepted to join the Scottish Football League in the Third Division, is this something you were aiming for from the start?

Ingvar Kamprad: From the start? No! Back in January I was imagining the side joining the Scottish Junior League's for a couple of seasons before trying to make the step up to senior football. I'm not complaining though!

Sky Sports: Your choice of stadium to start AFC Stonehaven United's life in has come under criticism from many people, how do you feel about that?

Ingvar Kamprad: Glenbury Park is the only grounds in Stonehaven so to me it was an obvious choice. I want to create a fan base & moving the team around the area is not the way to do this.

Sky Sports: There are rumours that you've aleady sorted the Stones out with a new stadium?

Ingvar Kamprad: I have secured a plot of land in Stonehaven, yes. Planning permition has been granted & I will be announcing final details later in the year.

Sky Sports: Finally we need to ask you about your choice of manager for the team.

Ingvar Kamprad: A new club deserves a new manager. We are looking for someone new to the role & are currently holding interviews. The clubs aim is to move up the Scottish leagues responsibly & not suffer the same fate as teams such as Gretna.

Saturday 10th July 2010 - Stones first ever game.
http://www.virtualfair.co.uk/Daily_record_virtual_shopping_mall/images/fair-logo.png

AFC Stonehaven United took to the field today to play their first ever game against Highland League outfit Forres Mechanics at the Stones temporary home Glenbury Park. The first 25 minutes consisted of the Stones having a good number of chances against their non-league opposition, but no first goal for the side. Stonehaven United's first ever goal came on 41 minutes & what a goal it was! Ian McKenna recieved the ball just past the half way line, took the ball unchallenged & shot for the opposite corner of the goal from 20 yards, leaving the Forres Mechanics goalkeeper wondering what had just happened as the ball went into his top right corner of the goal. Striker Bobby Lynn picked up a knock & was subbed off midway through the second half. The Stones defence were efficiant with what they had to deal with today, with their opponents rarely testing Raymond Jellema in goal. Out of the 39 fans in attendance, 26 were a group of Stonehaven Utd fans, already in replica shirts & singing their new team on only 6 months after the team were founded.

Stones line up: R.Jellema, S.Swift, M.McCulloch, A.McLean, K.Neilson, W.McLachlan, D.Wilson, I.McKenna, S.Pert, P.Hamilton, B.Linn (M.Wright)

The Stones have not enjoyed as good a start to Third Division football as they would have hoped being on the back of 3 defeats from 4 games, including a devastating 6:1 home defeat to league leaders Berwick Rangers. Victory over local rivals Montrose has been a positive this August but Stonehaven United will need to adapt to life quickly or face the embaressment of finishing bottom.



Youth Team round up:

The Under 19's got off to a similarly bad start, facing defeat in all 3 games in their division & find themselves 15ht & bottom.

- Despite doing everything possible to play in the town of Stonehaven, the club may attempt to enter a ground sharing agreement with a local Scottish League side.

- Set up temporary structures at Glenbury Park, providing Stonehaven FC give permission.
