Previously known as White Hart Lane Community Sports Centre, New River has been transformed by the renovation works, turning it into a state-of-the-art sport and leisure destination for local residents to enjoy.
During his visit, Ledley was given a preview of the new facilities which include a brand new gym and exercise studios, refurbished 400m athletics track, indoor ‘air dome’ with four tennis courts, 10 new astro pitches and a mobile gym for outdoor fitness training.
Ledley was later joined by staff from New River to cut the ribbon and declare the new astro pitches open before refereeing a five-a-side match between local youth teams from the community.
Speaking about the new facilities, Ledley said: “I’m very impressed with these new facilities – I would have liked to have had access to pitches like this when I was growing up. It’s important to give young people access to a variety of sports where they can play against their peers in a fun, safe environment and that’s exactly what they can do here at New River.”
