It also looks like Sunderland Council are giving the Northern Area pitches to Washington Juniors.
Unbeleivable!!!!! we dont have enough piches to start off with......
I have heard this too although not direct from the council as yet! We have played on the same pitch at the northern area since 1999 yet the council have not had the courtesy to discuss any of this with us or any other club for that matter! With a month until the season begins we are left in limbo with no idea if and where we will get a pitch in the local area.
Whilst I think the communication from the council is poor, unfortunately the problem is related to budgets! Unfortunately governments and local authorities see local leisure activities as a waste of money so have put the money elsewhere
! Ironic that on one hand they complain about the cost of healthcare yet On the other hand make sporting activities harder to access even though fitness activities improve public health!
Sorry to bring politics into it but the whole thing from communication from the council to the facilities being taken away really p****s me off
Like protecting their fat pension pots, it stinks to high heaven, and why i look at them as a complete waste of time.
