Thursday 15 March 2012, saw Charlton Athletic Manager, Chris Powell, officially open the new artificial grass pitch at Samuel Montagu Youth Centre.
Kate Hoey MP, Clive Efford MP and Football Foundation Chief Executive, Paul Thorogood also attended to help celebrate the opening of the new pitches at the Youth Centre.
The sports hub will offer a comprehensive programme of sport, multi media, creative, social and recreational activities to young people.
Samuel Montagu Youth Centre with the traditional sports of football, hockey and boxing plays a key role in engaging a growing number of young people in the local community. Charlton Athletic Community Club along with many more groups in the local area will enjoy using the brand new facility.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: "This fantastic community sports hub is just the kind of place I wanted to support when I launched my sports legacy programme to get Londoners of all ages and abilities into sport. I am sure that people from across Kidbrooke will take advantage of all the great facilities the Samuel Montagu Centre has to offer, so they can get fit and active for many years to come."
