Rosie Cooper MP has welcomed the decision to award Ormskirk West End FC £100k to refurbish and extend the existing changing rooms at their Whittle Drive Playing Fields.
The club have received this funding from the Multi Sports Grassroots Facilities Funding, with the intention of increasing the number of girls and women’s teams that they are able to support.
The project will improve the Club’s sustainability and offer modern facilities.
West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:
“I am delighted to hear that West End FC will receive this funding. The much-needed extension and modernisation of the changing rooms will finally allow the club to support more women and girls’ teams.
“Football is sadly still seen as a boys sport by many, so I am glad that in Ormskirk we are making sure that footie can be played by anyone that wants to!”
