Excellent opportunity for kids all ages to gain the skills at all sized pitches . Will breathe life into Cosham . Fantastic proposal!

Grass roots football is in dire need of investment since I was a child. Providing these much needed facilities will mean football in the local community will be far more accessible, providing social, physical and mental health benefits.

I am involved in grassroots football as a coach, facilities are somewhat lacking in the city so improvement is needed.
