Bosworth Academy – Top Field

This is a completely separate provision in the village but now provides an excellent facility for the Desford FC junior teams that have developed from 3 to 17 teams over the past 6 years, thus expanding way beyond anything SiD could provide. The Academy have now allocated this field for junior football and have permitted DFC to set up their own Portacabin to store equipment and provide their own facilities.
