Market Road Pitches in Islington has won the MyLocalPitch ‘Outstanding London Sports Venue Award’ – as voted by players.
The popular ground which hosts the two main leagues in the borough – the Islington Midweek League and Camden and Islington Youth League – was reopened in September by Arsenal’s Liam Brady after a £2.1m refurbishment.
Aleksandra Chmielewska, from Market Rd said: “The team here is thrilled to receive this award and it gives us huge satisfaction that our customers appreciate our ongoing efforts.”
Voters made their choice based on pitch quality, venue facilities and customer experience at the sporting venues they use.
