A Cambridgeshire-based construction company has donated more than £45,000 to Parson Drove football club.
Mick George Ltd, based in Huntingdon, has given £47,000 to the club to upgrade their grounds to a semi-professional level.
The club’s existing amenity at Main Road, Parson Drove, Wisbech is suitable to host Step 5 and 6 standard football matches.
However, after a £91,500 investment, including Mick George’s £47,000, the location is now adequate to hold matches at a higher level.
The new features include; a 100-person grandstand, pitch protection netting, shelter and dugouts, perimeter hard-standing and fencing, as well as an improved play area for visitors.
