A COMMUNITY’S sports teams will be on the front foot thanks to a new clubhouse.

The Northowram Community Sports Club unveiled the new £320,000 building at Westercroft Lane, home to Northowram Fields CC. Mini football and cricket tournaments were kickstarted the day of celebrations alongside a bouncy castle and activity stalls.

Chris Thompson, the cricket club’s development officer, said: “We have over 150 junior members and this will be a great asset to helping them for the future.

“It gives the football teams a home for the first time and we hope that it will encourage more people to get involved.”
