Sporting Edge in the Higher Openshaw district of Manchester has opened its doors to the public.

The £1.1m sports facility offers three external, floodlit, all-weather, five-aside football pitches – which will accommodate cricket, basketball, rugby and badminton – as well as new changing rooms.

A new community building featuring a computer suite has been built to provide training and internet access for local people. It will also be used as a meeting and activity space.

The community project was funded by a £600,000 grant from Barclays and the Football Foundation, together with £340,000 from east Manchester’s New Deal for Communities and £161,000 from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Sean McGonigle, coordinator of east Manchester’s New Deal, said: “It’s great to see this project come to fruition on time and on budget. Sporting Edge provides local youngsters with the opportunity to excel in sport.”

Local voluntary organisation 4CT will manage the new centre, which was built by Bramall Construction. Details:
