Over the last weekend I visited Newbiggin-by-the-sea Football Club, who have been facing some real difficulties with their current location and pitch.
You can see the effect vandalism is having on the space they use to train and play, this is not acceptable and it is a shame to see this behaviour impacting on the residents of Newbiggin.
However, I was incredibly impressed by the hard work and dedication of the team, who are thoroughly committed to sorting this out.
They have a clear vision for the future of the club and their community. I was given a real sense of hope when they showed me the Newbiggin Welfare site (where the old team used to play), which could be a great location for the future of the team.
Keep up the good work and I'll be supporting you all the way!
