MP attends football team opening event


FYLDE MP Mark Menzies swapped the political arena for the sporting arena during a visit to a local football ground.

The Member of Parliament was at the Blackpool Road North Playing Fields on Saturday for the official opening of St Annes FC’s new changing rooms and kitchen facilities.

The ribbon was cut on the project by St Annes chef and businessman Paul Rowley, who is in charge of catering at Blackpool FC.

Following the event, Mr Menzies said: “Investment in grass roots sport is key to continuing participation and interest and I was happy to see the work done by the club to improve things for its members.

“I was very impressed by the standard of the new facilities, as well as the passion for this project shown by officials and parents, which I believe is the key to success with schemes such as this.

“I was delighted to be able to attend to show my support.

“I hope footballers of all ages continue to enjoy the facilities for years to come and the success of this project is reflected on the field.”
