Dulwich Sports Ground History
The ground was formerly known as the London South Bank University Sports Ground.
The Southwark Community Sports Trust was created as a consequence of the former managers, London South Bank University, taking the decision to close the facilities in Sept 2010. The trust negotiated the assignment of the lease and the football pitches were brought back into use in January 2011 with cricket following in April that year.
An opening ceremony was held on 27th March 2011 presided over by the Rt Hon Tessa Jowell MP for the Dulwich & West Norwood constituency. (See Gallery)
