Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP, has congratulated the Glenmore Park Football Club upon receiving a grant of $7,000, administered under the Local Sport Grant Program, to contribute to the purchase of new uniforms, coach accreditation courses and fund upgrades to the canteen.
“The very essence of this program is to recognise the undeniable talent and dedication emerging from local sporting organisations such as the Glenmore Park Football Club,” Tanya Davies said.
Tanya Davies was joined by Club Secretary Richard Schotanus, Treasurer Melissa Xuereb, committee member Kelly Watkins and some young players from the Under 6 Alligators at Mulgoa Rise Sporting Fields in Glenmore Park, where the cheque was presented.
“The allocation of this grant signifies the ongoing commitment of the NSW Government in ensuring that local clubs are supported throughout their efforts in growing young athletes,” said Tanya Davies.
In particular, the $7,000 will be used by the Club to the purchase of new uniforms, coach accreditation courses and fund upgrades to the canteen.
“As many of the local sporting clubs in Mulgoa are run by volunteers, these grants are crucial in boosting infrastructure, programs and services to increase on-going participation,” said Tanya Davies.
