Cumbernauld United Football Club are a football club from Scotland. They operate from Guy's Meadow in the Cumbernauld Village area of the town of Cumbernauld in North Lanarkshire.

Formed in 1964, they are a member of the Scottish Junior Football Association, West Region.[1]

Club colours are maroon and blue, and the club's nickname is "United".

The club has a full youth academy with teams from the under-6 age group up to under-19 and is regarded by many as one of the best in West and Central Scotland. The academy plays its home games on the impressive 'HatTrix' astroturf park adjacent to the Guy's Meadow pitch, as well as on that pitch itself when weather permits.

Facilities[edit]

The stadium has few facilities, however the Hat-Trix sports bar lies at one end of the park and two terraced stands are situated at either side of the pitch.[4]The facility also includes an impressive astro turf facility, mainly used to host five-a-side football. The stadium's record attendance was set when 2,200 people watched Cumbernauld play Pollok in 1983.

Kirkintilloch Rob Roy[edit]

Since 2014, fellow SJFA club, Kirkintilloch Rob Roy have used the stadium as their home venue whilst they search for new home to replace the historic Adamslie Park, in which they played for almost 100 years.[5]
