Pilgrims find a resting place thanks to ABP

[ November 4, 2015   //   ]

It may not look much today, but this former sports pavilion is set to become the new home of under 10s football club Immingham Pilgrims – with the help of a £5,000 donation from Associated British Ports (ABP).

The dream of renovating the disused Roval Drive building and creating a thriving club house belonged to Under 10s football

Club manager, Mark Davis explains that though the Pilgrims have been running for over 30 years, “we have never had a real base to call home that the children and coaches can be proud of” – until he spotted the dilapidated building in Roval Drive.

He added:. “There is a lot of work to do but with ABP’s support, we are now able to make these changes and improve the building more quickly than I imagined.”

 ABP has also agreed to sponsor the football kit for a new all girls team.
