Facility Developments

West Drive Football Centre

Tintwistle Athletic has outstanding facilities at its West Drive football centre. The achievements are down to the hard work and commitment of our committee as well as contributions from all our teams working together for the same aim.



The first phase of our development started in 2013 with the installation of a brand-new drainage system to our back pitch, with the funding coming from Sport England’s protecting playing fields.

2015 - 2017

This was followed just two years later with phase two - the levelling and installation of a brand-new drainage system to our front pitch, funded again by Sport England’s protecting playing fields.

2016 - 2017

Furthermore, in the same year we were granted funding from a combination of The premier league and the FA facilities fund, the FA 11 v 11 fund and Sport England’s Inspired facilities fund to build a new purpose built clubhouse incorporating changing rooms for players, officials, clubroom, kitchen, general toilets and store with full disabled access.
