Moneyslane Football Club will officially open their Jubilee Park pitch and facilities on Saturday, August 2 and will mark the occasion by playing a Manchester United Legends team which will include some of the most famous players to wear the Red Devils shirt.
Over the last three years, Moneyslane FC, with the help of SPORT NI, and other government funding, have been developing a completely new football facility and community hub in the heart Moneyslane Village. This comprises of a full size grass pitch, a grass training pitch, a 3G training pitch, a club house and new changing room complex. These facilities are and will be used by all the local community and by a range of organisations including Cub Scouts, GB and the local GAA club.
Jubilee Park must be one of the most scenic football grounds in Northern Ireland with spectacular views of the Mourne Mountains and the beautiful South Down area and stands testament to what a vision, hard work and community spirit can achieve.
