Geoff Shreeves helped Blues chairman Aron Sharpe and vice-chairman David Thrilling on Saturday

Wingate & Finchley held the official opening ceremony for the refurbished Maurice Rebak Stadium on Saturday.

The event took place after the Blues’ Bostik Premier match with Folkestone Invicta and was led by Sky Sports’ Geoff Shreeves – a close friend of club chairman Aron Sharpe.

In a speech celebrating the occasion, Sharpe stated how proud he was of the journey he started back in 2004 when forming his first kid’s club.

His intention was to provide a player pathway for young players into adult football, which would be facilitated by building a community club that was self-sustainable.

Sharpe has now completed this following the opening last year of the Hadley Wood Sports Trust’s training centre in Barnet, and he in particular thanked the club’s vice-chairman David Thrilling for all his hard work and support over the years.

Sharpe closed by thanking the Football Foundation, the Wingate Youth Trust and all of the supporters for their continued encouragement.
