A football club has replaced its dilapidated changing rooms with a purpose-built pavilion - thanks to grants of nearly £100,000.
Anglian Combination side St Andrews FC opened the new pavilion at Thorpe Recreation Ground, in Laundry Lane, Thorpe St Andrew, at the weekend.
The project was made possible thanks to a £76,053 grant from the Premier League and The FA Facilities Fund, delivered by the Football Foundation.
The Premier League, through the Football Stadia Improvement Fund – the sister organisation of the Football Foundation – also invested £19,463.
The scheme has also been supported by Broadland District Council and the Norfolk FA.
