PLANS to raise �80,000 to upgrade a popular WGC football club have won the support of MP Grant Shapps.
Mr Shapps visited Panshanger FC, in Moneyhole Playing Fields, Sylvan Way, where he heard about proposals to improve the club.
They include refurbishing the changing rooms and converting the existing concrete training surface into an enclosed all weather facility, which would be available for residents to use during the day.
Mr Shapps said: "Not only do the volunteers who run Panshanger Football Club do a wonderful job teaching so many young people within Hertfordshire how to develop their football skills, but they also provide a marvellous environment where players can have fun and socialise."
