Nottingham Forest and Derby County legend John McGovern will be at Coronation Park next Friday (14th) help celebrate the opening of Eastwood Community Football Club’s new pitchside lounge and bar.

Manyof Coronation Park’s off-pitch facilities have been refurbished since the new club moved in to replace Eastwood Town FC during the summer, and former double European Cup winner McGovern will be on hand to help mark the opening of the new lounge with a Q&A session and tales from his successful career.

Club chairman Steve Yardley said: “We set out what we would do in the first 100 days as an important route map as to our objectives and I am delighted we have exceeded each and every one of those objectives in just 63 days.

“Whilst we have worked incredibly hard to achieve this we could not have done it without the support of all the respective agencies, partners and suppliers we have worked with along the way, so we thank them for that.”

Entry to the event at Coronation Park will be free with doors opening at7pm.
