Players at the borough’s only rugby club are using toilets designed for two to four-year-olds because of a lack of facilities in their clubhouse.
The revelation has come to light as Kilburn Cosmos launches a fundraising mission to secure the lease on its clubhouse and build a new toilet block.
The rugby club, which is based in Gladstone Park, Dollis Hill, also plan to turn its clubhouse into a community asset as part of the £20,000 makeover.
The Rugby Football Foundation has offered the club £10,000 but it will only receive it if it can raise the same amount.
Aidan Quinn, a coach at the club, told the Times the need for the new facility was “critical”.
