The new 5-a-side football pitch for youngsters at Crossens Rec was officially opened today by Alan Moogan of Southport FC.

The new pitch, on Crossens Recreation Ground, was funded from a Playbuilder grant available for keep fit projects for youngsters. Crossens Community Association, supported by the local Lib Dem councillors, suggested a 5-a-side pitch would be the most popular attraction.

This pitch is another improvement for Crossens Rec, which also hosts cricket and adult football.
