CONSTRUCTION of a £4.2 million football ground and sports centre has begun.

Sporting Club Thamesmead is being developed by Trust Thamesmead and partners on the site of Thamesmead Town FC's grounds, in Bayliss Avenue.

Work on the public centre was launched last Tuesday with a cheque handover of £1 million from the Football Foundation.

Vic Grimes, Trust Thamesmead's chair, commented: "I'm very pleased that we now have all the funding in place. Thamesmead will have at last have the quality facility it has been sorely lacking for so long."

The project comes a month after the Trust was awarded £5.5 million by the government to build a youth complex in Harrow Manor Way.
