Exciting new plans for St Paul's Sports Ground
Millwall Community Trust has been appointed to manage the new St Paul’s Sports Ground, Salter Road, in the London Borough of Southwark.
The recently completed facility, which has undergone a £1m investment programme since planning permission was agreed in 2014, has also become the new home of local football team Fisher FC – who played their first home game at the site last month.
MCT CEO Steve Bradshaw said: “I’m delighted that MCT has been appointed to manage St Paul’s Recreation Ground. We will be looking to build on the work we are already doing in Southwark and believe that the St Paul’s Sports Ground will be a tremendous asset for the local community in the north of the borough.
"It's a key aim of Millwall Community Trust to provide local people with access to top quality facilities in a safe and positive environment. We will work in partnership with local schools and organisations to deliver football and active health programmes.
"We are excited to deepen and strengthen our relationship with London Borough of Southwark, enabling an outreach focus for players of all ages. We are also proud to work with our new partner Fisher FC, supporting their development and we anticipate the St Paul’s site will provide a home for Millwall Lionesses and Millwall girls' programmes".
Dan Feeney, Interim Co-Chairman of Fisher FC said; “We look forward to developing the natural synergies we already share with Millwall Community Trust to ensure that Fisher FC and St Paul's Stadium become the true community assets which we have always worked towards.”
Now the hard work begins as Millwall Community Trust continues to use the power of Millwall to improve lives through engagement in sport.
