Sir Trevor Brooking is guest of honour at Sporting Club Thamesmead opening
FOOTBALL legend Sir Trevor Brooking was a guest of honour at the official opening of a Thamesmead sports centre.
The FA’s head of football development in England attended the invitation-only bash on September 23 at Sporting Club Thamesmead.
His visit to the Bayliss Avenue centre came after local charity Trust Thamesmead received a £1m grant from the Football Foundation.
The multi-million pound community sports and leisure centre aims to provide the area with first class facilities and a boost for Thamesmead Town FC, who are now enjoying being newly promoted to the Ryman Premier League.
Trust Thamesmead chairman Vic Grimes said: "The fantastic response from the Football Foundation and our other funders mean that Thamesmead will at last have the quality facility it has been sorely lacking for so long."
