Notes: The club moved to the new ground in March 2013, which is actually next door to their former home of Murrayfield Park that will remain in use by the clubs youth teams. The existing covered enclosure was moved to the new ground and holds around 100, and the new pavilion features 6 changing rooms, external toilets for spectators and kitchen with external hatch selling food and drink. Plenty of hard standing around two sides of the pitch, and match standard floodlights for midweek games. A 3G playing surface was added in November 2015, and a 60 seater covered stand was added to the Purdie Worldwide Community Stadium at New Murrayfield Park in 2024.
The club joined the East of Scotland League in 2018 after many years in the East Juniors.
