AFC Urmston Meadowside

AFC Urmston Meadowside

Manchester-based AFC Urmston Meadowside together with Manchester County FA, managed to secure a £521,178 grant from the Foundation’s Facilities Scheme.

The facilities scheme aims to improve facilities in local communities to sustain and increase participation amongst children and adults.

In place of the rotting changing block at AFC Urmston Meadowside, there now stands a stunning new community pavilion which provides a function room. England and Manchester City FC goalkeeper, Joe Hart, officially unveiled the new facility in October 2011.

AFC Urmston Meadowside Vice Chairman, David Wright said:

"Straight away the new facility just makes it feel like a club, because of the feeling and the buzz around the place which means the players themselves are getting far more out of it."
