Birchwood Community High School are delighted to be officially opening their newly refurbished third generation artificial grass pitch.
This project has been made possible by a £367,235 grant from the Premier League, The FA and Government’s Football Foundation. Birchwood Community High School also contributed £90,000 from school funds to make the project possible.
The refurbished pitch, which will open on Friday, March 29 at 10am, will enable partner clubs Birchwood Juniors FC and Woolston Rovers FC to return to their home site. Both clubs were forced to find alternative playing locations when the original pitch was closed for community use in Spring 2017. The new pitch will facilitate the growth of the clubs in youth, Mini-Soccer and open-age players, with a focus on mixed and girls’ football.
Since 2000, the Football Foundation Funding Partners’ investment has provided 268 grants worth £14.7m towards grassroots sports projects worth over £54.1m across the whole of Liverpool County FA.
