Ashton New Road
Ashton New Road
The A662 Manchester to Ashton under Lyne road via Droylsden. On the left behind the bus stop is the Metrolink Velodrome tram stop and Eastlands Asda store. On the right is the Manchester City Football Training Academy. The police car in the road had just come through the junction with its lights flashing and siren blazing.
Manchester City Academy Arena
Manchester City’s new youth development and first team training centre, the City Football Academy, was opened on December 8, 2014 by former City manager and captain, Tony Book. The impressive arena, just across the road from the Etihad Stadium, was built on an 80-acre brownfield site which was formerly home to Clayton Aniline, a company which produced dyestuffs. The firm disbanded in 2004 leaving the site derelict and by the time construction of the academy began in 2012, the site was little more than wasteland.
