Upon opening the facility, Ken, had this to say: “We are delighted to see Worthing Town finally able to open their state-of-the-art 3G pitch thanks to the Football Foundation.
"I was very proud to officially open the facility and it's fantastic to be able to present more playing opportunities to teams and players in the area."
Duncan Anderson, CEO at South Downs Leisure, said: “We are delighted to be working with Worthing Borough Council and Worthing Town FC, and are really excited to be opening these fantastic football facilities that are much needed in the town.
“Together, we’re offering more opportunities for more teams to play the beautiful game, whatever the weather.”
Councilor Sean McDonald, Worthing's Executive Member for Health & Wellbeing, said: "I am delighted that this project has now been completed. The facility is excellent and will allow local children and adults full use, regardless of the weather conditions. We now have a world class facility in the Borough of Worthing that we should all be proud of.
"Maybe, just maybe, the next Beckham, Rashford, Ellen White or Harry Kane can one day say that they began their career at Palatine Park."
