Annan Athletic Football Club are a Community Football Club that play in League 2 in Scottish Football League, founded in 1942 we are run by volunteers. Most people think of a football club and a match at 3 o’clock on a Saturday.

 At Galabank we do much more than this, we have we approximately 2000 local people using the facilities every week, the range of activities is already diverse.

We have a responsibility that extends to all in our community.

We want our facilities to be used from Dawn to Dusk.

We need your votes to help us, to help us create a Hub in the Community operating as a centre for health and wellbeing focusing on all, regardless of gender, age, race, sexual orientation, class, special needs, culture or social status.

With your help we will deliver new programmes: introducing breakfast clubs, lunchtime clubs, after school clubs, we can do more, we want to do more.

Of course we can and will still have football and have fun but working with our youngsters we will address bullying, healthy living, road safety, substance misuse, truancy, racism and so much more.

We value everyone in our Community, our lunchtime and early afternoon clubs will provide an opportunity for the elderly to exercise and socialise.
