A statement on the Kilwinning Sport's Club (KSC) Facebook page said no date had been fixed for the project with the building still to be moved on site.

But they revealed the development was a result of the 'hard work and vison' of the Kilwinning Rangers committee, in partnership with KSC.

The statement said: "This is a very exciting development for the club and the town.

The shell of the new facility

"It will take a lot of blood sweat and tears to get the building moved and it won't happen overnight, there are a lot if other projects ongoing around the club we are focused on completing first, but everyone involved is determined to make this happen.

"To be fair we all thought moving a whole building from East Kilbride and rebuilding it here in Kilwinning as a new Community Hub was a near impossible task, but where there's will and a group of determined volunteers, anything is possible.

"A special mention for key players Colin Evans, Colin Boyd and Jim Hodge for their hard word and vision on this and also to Ardeer Regeneration for their generosity.

Members of the public are also invited to make suggestions regarding other possible uses for the facility.
