Award for Market Road manager
If you play football at Market Road pitches you will recognise their manager Erika Di Ludovico. She has just been given an award by Playfinder, a sports booking website, for her work to make sure the centre runs smoothly.
Market Road is next door to the Islington Tennis Centre. Sports players can get access to two full-size 3G artificial pitches that are marked for 11a-side and 5a-side football and three 5a-side pitches.
It is the go to facility in Islington for grassroots football and hosts the two main leagues in the borough; the Islington Midweek League and the Camden and Islington Youth League.
Erika is in charge of the facility and has been integral in placing bookings for community groups, schools and local sports players living and working across London.
She said: “What a pleasant surprise it was to be notified of this award from Playfinder. I certainly wasn’t expecting it!”
