Calcutt Football Ground Opens for Business

by billhoult on 29 May, 2010

On the morning of the 29 May I attended the opening day of the Thistle Hill Football ground which will be the permanent Home of Knaresborough Celtic Football Club. The project, controversial at times was started seven years ago and has cost in excess of £600K. The Club were fortunate to receive a grant from the Football association of £400K which still left a mammoth sum to be found. The pitch was laid over two years ago but was unable to be used until two seasons had passed and the bad winter extended that time. With a full size pitch and five junior pitches it is the best football facility in the whole District, if not North Yorkshire.
