If you love football then you really love grassroots football.
My favourite sporting arenas over the years in no particular are
Edge Hall Road – Orrell RUFC
Springfield Park – Wigan Athletic
Old Trafford Cricket Ground – Lancashire CCC
(And above) Barrows Farm, Carr Mill Road – Billinge FC
In fact when the sun shines, like it did yesterday, there is no greater place to be than at Billinge Football Club. There are great plans in the pipeline up at Billinge but it all takes money and it will take a few years to achieve those aims and dreams. That is why it is so important to get grants wherever you can. There is money around and we thank all the authorities that provide such grants. It’s just a pity that there isn’t more especially with all the money swishing around at the top level.
Cheers – every bit helps
