York League Premier grounds 3/14
The Centre opened in February 2011 and amongst its facilities is a standard 3G caged pitch with dugouts at one side.
I wasn’t expecting to see any football this weekend. I was staying in Thornton Dale just outside Pickering for the weekend, for the occasion of Uncle Malc’s 60th Birthday Bash. A few days before heading down to Yorkshire I checked the local fixtures and found Brooklyn FC were at home. The club are based in Malton, so it was just a quick 15 minute drive from our cottage and they also have a 3G pitch, so it couldn’t have worked out any better. Even though there was only 20 in attendance, there was still someone I knew at the game, as Michelle, one of the nicest people on the groundhopping circuit had found a game at the third attempt.
