Some Facts

Annan Athletic, who were then playing in the Carlisle and District League, moved to Galabank in 1953. They had previously been based at Mafeking Park since the 1946-47 season. The club rejoined Scottish football in 1977, playing in theSouth of Scotland League and later the East of Scotland League. This enabled the club to attempt to qualify for the Scottish Cup, and Galabank hosted its first match in the national competition against Stranraer on 15 December 1979.[2]
On 3 July 2008 Annan Athletic were accepted into the Scottish Football League for the first time, to replace defunct club Gretna.[3] Consequently Galabank began hosting Annan's games in the Scottish Football League Third Division in the 2008–09 season.
A party from the SFL inspected Galabank before Annan were accepted into the league. They deemed it to be of the required standard, with the provision that Annan install floodlights, which the club did before the start of their first season in the lowest tier of the Scottish Football League. Galabank has a capacity of 2,514.[4]
The grass pitch was removed and a new 3G artificial surface was installed for the 2012–13 season.[5] Since 2012, Galabank has been shared by South of Scotland League club Mid-Annandale, whose previous ground in Lockerbie had become unusable.From Wikipedia
