Premier League striker Darren Bent officially opened a Football Foundation-funded £1.1m sports complex in Kent.
He joined over 200 youngsters at Woodlands Primary School and even had a kickabout with them on their new 3G artificial grass pitch, before officially declaring the facilities open.
A grant of £815,470 from the Foundation was secured by Medway Council. It enabled the development of a 60m x 40m third generation artificial turf pitch with floodlighting, a changing pavilion, improvements to grass pitches and external works and car parking.
A £70,000 grant from Nike also went towards giving the school a brand new Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) which will provide a playing surface for a range of sports such as football, hockey, basketball and tennis.
The Foundation also awarded Woodlands school with free Nike strips and equipment worth £400 through the Junior Kit Scheme.
