We started off by forming a Steering Group to look at the possibility of re-opening a disused sports centre (McMaster Sports Centre). The Steering Group comprised of 3 local sports group; Johnstone Burgh BC (Football - U21s), Thorn Athletic (Footbal - Amateurs), and Club Lee (Martial Arts). As we progressed we decided to change our name from West Johnstone Sport and Fitness for Everyone Group (SAFE) to Johnstone Community Sports Complex (J.C.S.C).
