“Thirty years of hurt never stopped us dreaming!” and the wait is almost over!
Work will soon come to an end on the drainage scheme that we initiated with help from Leigh Genesis FC, the Football Foundation and Sport England on our school playing fields at the end of 2015.
We hope that the conclusion of the project will blow the final whistle on three decades of frustration for the school. Three decades during which the PE Department has been unable to use the full field for nearly ten months of every school year due to the soggy conditions.
Director of Community, Stephen Toole, said: “We are looking forward the first ball being kicked/hit or thrown in anger when our students return from their forthcoming summer holidays. Furthermore, we welcome our partner Leigh Genesis Football Club which will take up residence and begin playing its home fixtures here from September 2016.”
