Rishton United Football Club yesterday (23rd March 2016) received some fantastic news with government approval granting the club with a twenty-five year lease of part of Rishton Playing Fields. Councillor Ken Moss, Cabinet Member for Leisure, said; “This is great news for the Club and the local sporting community.
The lease will enable the Club to establish this land as their home ground and to apply for funding from Sport England and the Lancashire Football Association, who require a twenty-five year lease as an essential part of any funding application. If funding is approved this money will enable them to develop the sports ground and promote sport, and in particular football for the local community."
