Former England and Aston Villa striker, Dion Dublin, is 'delighted' to be opening a revamped Rectory Park Pavilion and football pitches in Birmingham today.
Football is our national game so it is only right that the players and volunteers at the grassroots should have somewhere comfortable to get changed and shower before and after matches.
I am delighted to see this facility has benefited from investment from the Football Foundation's funding partners - the Premier League, The FA and the Government. When I played for Villa it was not too far from here, so it's particularly nice to see this site receiving this major boost.
Former Aston Villa and Coventry striker, Dion Dublin, will open the newly-renovated Rectory Park Pavilion and football pitches in Sutton Coldfield today.
The new facilities were funded by a grant of more than £300,000 from the country's largest sports charity, the Football Foundation. Birmingham City Council will also provide more funding for pitch improvements.
