Stop plans to downsize the football pitch at Barnard Park

Currently, Barnard Park contains an 11 a side pitch located in Barnsbury, Central London. Although the pitch is in need of renovation, the rich, social elite have put forward plans to change the pitch to a 7 a side one, which will simply not be big enough for projects like Highbury football school, that offers very affordable coaching every Sunday morning to up to 150 children. At a recent meeting that passed the proposed changes, it was said that there would be a suitable amount of space to play football and other activities on, which simply isn't true, especially as there isn't another 11 a side pitch in the area. We want to push for an eleven a side pitch that will be top quality Astro turf that actually benefits the local community,   especially as the FA and sport England have agreed to pay for the facilities. 

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Islington council
  • The FA
