£500,000 pitch kicks off a fresh wave of girls’ footy
A £500,000 sports pitch aims to encourage 100 more girls and women to play football.
The artificial grass pitch was officially unveiled at Philip Morant School and College in Colchester.
It was made possible thanks to a £498,959 grant from the Football Foundation charity and has been more than a year in the making.
The new pitch not only provides the secondary school’s PE department with a first-class facility, but the community will be able to use the all-weather training site for youth development and community projects.
