On Behalf of Wealdstone Youth FC I am pleased to announce that we have secured an agreement from Hillingdon Council to have the football pitches on New Pond fields, (Sidmouth Drive opposite Ruislip High school) for our EXCLUSIVE use. The start date of this agreement will be 16th September 2017.
This follows a request for assistance and a very productive meeting with the Manor ward councillors, (Cllrs Markham, Mills & O'Brien).
The pitches will be set out to accommodate football in the following formats; 5v5, 7v7, 9v9, Intermediate and Full size this will enable football to be played locally for children of every age group in our community. This opportunity allows us to continue to offer both coaching and games as we have done since our beginning at the Grosvenor Vale site.
We are very proud of our heritage and our affiliation to the Wealdstone FC senior side, it is the closest location to Wealdstone FC where we still have use of the club house and can watch the mighty Stones play!!
We are extremely pleased with this offer and grateful to our local councillors in enabling this to happen. The Council has also assisted the previous users of the pitches at New Ponds so everyone wins from this new arrangement, I would like to give thanks to all who made this possible;
Manor Ward councillors
Hillingdon Green Spaces, Sports & Culture
Paul Richards (Head)
Adrian Batten (Manager)
I would also like to give thanks to the Wealdstone Youth Committee and of course to all the Managers, Coaches, Players, Parents and Carers for your patience.
I look forward to seeing you all soon and cannot wait to see the pitches at New Ponds filled with our famous blue and white quarters and watching our fantastic club grow at our new home ground.
