NELSON officials are celebrating after they won up to £5,000 to give their football pitch a makeover as part of a UK wide grassroots football campaign.

The prize was awarded as part of credit card company Capital One’s ‘Grounds for Improvement’ programme, which is aimed at improving the condition of football pitches up and down the country.

Fayaz Ahmed, chairman of Nelson FC said: “Winning £5,000 is a huge boost and will have a really impact on improving our facilities.

“We’re so grateful to Capital One for their support and can’t wait for the work to get started.”
