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.
Kirkby Road Pitches
The Changing Rooms at Kirby Road offer full changing facilities for 4 teams with excellent hot showers. They provide facilities for the 2 full size pitches on the adjacent recreation ground, which are some of the best draining pitches in the County.
