Former England and Leeds United goalkeeper Nigel Martyn was in Bradford yesterday to open a £350,000 sports pavilion.

Woodhouse Grove School, in Apperley Bridge, worked with Bradford Council and sports clubs in the area on a project which led to the construction of the new facilities in Rawdon Meadows, using £98,000 from the Premier League and The FA Facilities Fund.

Assistant director Sport and Leisure at Bradford Council Phil Barker said: “It is a groundbreaking partnership that marks a successful outcome of the Council working with Woodhouse Grove School, local football clubs and the Bronte Archers to secure the future of this great recreation ground.

“It is an innovative way of working using community sports facilities that are improved and managed with a range of partners.”
