A SPORTS club is hoping to unveil a new muli-use ground in the next week.

The Earls Colne Recreation Club, in Earls Colne, has given an update on the build of their new multi-use games area.

It is hoped the new pitch will bring in new groups and sports, including football and netball.

The club has been working away to build the new pitch and was able to afford it after securing just over £87,500 from Bellway’s De Vere Road housing development in the village.

The money was a massive boost for the club who are hoping to expand within the next few weeks.

A spokesman for the club, speaking on July 29, said they hope to have the pitch finished by the end of next week.

A spokesman for the club said: "We're getting very excited at ECRC. The MUGA - multi use games area - is hopefully going to be finished by the end of next week.

"We have lines ready for football and Netball. If you are interested in hiring the pitch for a club or group of friends to get together then give us a shout."
