Sir Trevor opens new facilities
SATURDAY, 9 JULY 2005
A proud day for both Crawley Green Sports & Social
Club and Ashcroft High School as the joint venture which provided
new changing rooms and coaching facilities at the Club plus a third generation

and West Ham football star Sir Trevor Brooking.
Below are just a few pics of the day:
