League cup winners...but Forth under-17s coach John Mackenzie is quitting

A FORTH football coach has quit amid claims that the local authority has ignored his pleas for new changing facilities in the village following the discovery of asbestos.

Forth Community Club’s John Mackenzie has finally thrown in the towel, four years after the Recreation Park pavilion was closed after asbestos was found “under a floorboard and behind sockets”.

John said: “I’m quitting as our under-17 coach after seven years.”
