Regarding The Bruntcliffe sports facility – firstly, I want to congratulate everybody that has been involved in this exciting project which will secure the development of new sporting facilities to improve local sport participation following on from the London Olympics legacy.
However, my only concern is that I wasn’t approached to become part of the Bruntcliffe Community Sports Partnership which was formed back in 2011.
I am the secretary of Morley Town AFC and we have just lost two whole weekends without any football due to us playing on Leeds City Council maintained grounds following the recent snow.
The weather has a major impact on our season because when games get called off, we lose out on generating club funds from match day subs and selling football cards, etc.
The new facility will boast a state-of-the-art third generation (3G) all-weather full-size pitch with floodlit facility. Project leader and Bruntcliffe deputy head Ryan Hurst has already indicated by saying: “If this works well, which we think it will, we ought to be a model for other schools to follow.”
