Astroturf is available for mini footballers
9:01am Thursday 31st October 2013 in Letters
I REFER to a letter from Tony Williams, chairman of the Vale of Glamorgan Football League a couple of weeks ago which claimed that children were being denied use of the Astroturf at Barry Sports Centre on Saturday mornings when the grass pitches were waterlogged.
I only wish Mr Williams had contacted me to discuss his concerns and not rush to the press to stir up the football community.
I have spoken to Parkwood Leisure who have confirmed that the Astroturf is available for the mini footballers to use on Saturday mornings free of charge throughout the season between the times of 9am until noon.
In future, I would ask Mr Williams to contact me or the leisure officers at the Vale of Glamorgan Council to clarify any issues before running to the press.
