The Manchester United manager spoke with children at the school, which was awarded £1m by the Football Foundation towards the cost of developing the facilities. Sport England also provided funds.

The village, which will be used both by pupils and by local people, includes an artificial grass pitch with floodlights, a multi-use games area and grass pitches, as well as support facilities such as an ICT sports suite for coach education.
