The Club received funding from the Football Foundation, Football Stadia Improvement Fund and the Sports England-managed Community Club Development Programme.
The funding has provided a new six changing room pavilion with ancillary facilities, as well as three full-size, three junior and three mini grass pitches on a new site.
"It's a day that many of us have dreamed of for so long. Congratulations to everyone that made it possible. Fantastic facilities not only for the 1st Team but veterans, ladies and a large number of pitches for the youth teams. A great event!"
