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”.
He added: “We’re very much a community club, truly local club and a truly community club. Were a small club that keeps on ticking over because everyone lends a hand.”
The club, have three men’s teams and women’s team.
They also have boys and girls teams for children aged six to 17.
In August a burglar broke into the clubhouse and stole £900 from the bar’s takings.
