A JINXED Huddersfield sports club looks sets to have its prayers answered.
Longley Tennis and Bowling Club has suffered four break-ins, a fire and a flood since the new year.
Also, ambitious refurbishment plans looked set to be scuppered because cash raised fell £45,000 short of the target.
But Kirklees Council's Neighbourhood Renewal Decision Making Panel meets tomorrow and looks set to make up the missing cash from the Government's Neighbourhood Renewal Fund (NRF).
A report says the club has approached other bodies to meet the shortfall, but none has been forthcoming to date.
The £500,000 refit of the Longley Road headquarters include a new clubhouse, showers, changing rooms, toilets, kitchen and social area.
Courts are also to be resurfaced, parking improved and security boosted by fully securing the site with new fencing.
Cash from the National Lottery and Sport England raised almost £460,000.
The report says the NRF cash would "guarantee the creation of a major community sports facility in the heart of a key neighbourhood renewal target area".
It recommends an increase in the money allocated from the NRF from £23,000 to a maximum of £77,047.
This will be reduced accordingly if other cash becomes available.
