Hammers Launch Higgins Community Centre

Local children from Windsor Primary School in Beckton helped celebrate the launch of the new Higgins Sports Link training centre at Beckton in association with West Ham United's In the Community scheme.

West Ham United's Christian Dailly and Malky Mackay were among the players who attended the launch on Wednesday 24th November, along with West Ham United Chairman Terence Brown and Higgins Group PLC Chairman Richard Higgins.
The state-of-the-art facility is now available for groups of all ages to enjoy and develop their football, with evening sessions already being booked by local teams, while schools, colleges and other community groups make use of the training centre during the day.

The centre is also promoting the facilities for lunchtime use by teams from local companies.

West Ham United Chairman Terence Brown said: "The new centre provides local community groups with training facilities to match the very best at professional level. This can only help children get the most from their sport."

"Of course, I'm delighted we can support my favourite football club in bringing professional  training facilities to local people," said Richard Higgins of Higgins Group PLC, which is now the official sponsor of West Ham United's community initiatives.
