SABDEN Football Club is in line to receive a grant from Ribble Valley Borough Council to help upgrade its changing rooms.

The council will vote on Tuesday whether to give the club a grant of £1,500 towards the cost of the work on the building, after the club submitted an application for £8,800.

If the project for the 30-year-old building off Pendleside Close is given the green light, the club hopes to open up the facility to junior groups, women’s teams and the local schools and youth groups.

The project has been supported by the parish council, residents and Sabden Primary School and St Mary’s RC Primary School. The club hopesbuilding can start in the next few months.
