Local fans starstruck by new stadium

The new English Premier League (EPL) season kicked off yesterday with free screenings at two community clubs, with another 22 more joining in during the 10-month season.

Other CCs will commence their EPL screening in phases and details will be made available on PA's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/PAFrenz).

Residents are encouraged to contact the CCs directly for the latest match screening schedules.
