Ilkley Round Table have pledged a huge £15,000 towards Ilkley Town AFC’s dream football pitch bid.
Ilkley Town AFC now have around two-thirds of the money required to build new all weather pitches which will host the club’s 30 teams and 450 players. The facilities will allow Ilkley Town AFC to set up additional girls teams, provide people with disabilities a chance to play football and walking football for over-50s.
The club’s chairman said that "This substantial contribution will go a long way towards our fundraising target and is a fantastic show of support from the local community for this project.
Ilkley and District Round Table raise the money by organising community events throughout the year, their next one is this weekend's Ilkley beer festival
