Tanya Davies MP, State Member for Mulgoa, joined players and parents from St Clair United Soccer Club’s Under 9s team to celebrate the recent announcement that their Club was successful in receiving a $15,000 grant under the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership program.
Tanya Davies said she was delighted to support the St Clair United Soccer Club with their grant submission. The Club’s committee, led by project coordinator Mark Reynolds, strongly advocated for the Club throughout the grant submission process.
The grant is for turfing and watering systems on the mini soccer fields used by the Under 8s and 9s teams playing at Mark Leece Oval, St Clair.
“This NSW Government funding will go a long way to improving player safety and enjoyment. The club’s mini fields have suffered in recent years from overuse and under nourishment. This grant will improve the current playing fields at Mark Leece Oval” Tanya Davies said.
“Finally, our kids won’t have to play this season on a dust bowl when it’s dry, and in mud when it rains,” said one of the parents.
St Clair United Soccer Club was one of 13 grant applicants who received a share of $300,000 total for community infrastructure committed to rebuilding NSW and creating local jobs in Tanya’s electorate of Mulgoa.
St Clair United Soccer Club is now taking player registrations for the upcoming 2015 winter season. For more information, goto www.stclairsoccer.com.au
