Mexborough Athletic Sports Club (Mexborough Miners’ Welfare Institute and recreation Grounds, Charity No. 523779) Operate the sports grounds located between Adwick Ground and Hampden Road in Mexborough.
The grounds are home to Mexborough Tennis Club, Mexborough Cricket Club and Mexborough Football club plus other teams who hire the grounds on a season by season basis. We play hosts to the Montagu Cup final lus other Mexborough FA finals.
The club and the grounds are managed and maintained by local volunteers.
Mexborough Miners’ Welfare Institute and Recreations Grounds is the Charity responsible for operating the grounds as a community resource. Financing the day to day running of the grounds and looking to improve the quality of the facilities is an ongoing struggle. We are therefore delighted to announce that we have just received a Grant offer of £4,500 from the Foyle Foundation .
The Grant will help improve the changing rooms used by both the football and cricket teams by laying specialist waterproof, slip resistant flooring helping maintain the facilities in a safe and hygienic condition. Any remaining funds will be used further improve the main football field, over seeding and applying top soil to the goal mouths and other warn out areas of the pitch.
