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.
