SIR - Re your piece on new sports facilities in Manningham. Why is it that only certain areas are chosen?

Manningham Mills on Scotchman Road had £1.3m around 20 years ago. Bradford Park Avenue's cricket ground has been earmarked for millions and five new non-turf cricket pitches were installed in and around Bradford in 2019. A new cricket centre is also planned but it will not be this side of town.

Throw in Myra Shay, the Karmand Centre and some. All kids deserve a sporting chance and a level playing field but National Governing Bodies are box-ticking delusionists, whilst our Council has not got a clue about sport. It is shameful stuff.
