It was great to visit Stanley Park Football ground this morning and meet with Pete Hussey, Manager of Stanley park and the Sports Grounds. It is a fantastic resource for our community with 16 grass pitches and 1 3G artificial pitch in the developed 38 acre site.

There are a whopping 102 teams that call the two time national award winning Stanley park their home venue, including U5’s to Adult teams, girls teams, Ability counts and social inclusion teams and over 50’s walking football.

The club has a 5 star rating of excellence from the football foundation – we are very lucky indeed to have it on our doorstep, I will support the club and work with them to help them to improve their facilities further and expand.
