Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP joined the St Clair Comets to announce a $15,000 grant towards a water tank to keep the playing fields healthy at Peppertree Reserve, Erskine Park.
Tanya Davies presented the cheque to St Clair Comets President, Darren Mudford, and St Clair Comets players Coopa McMahon, Braxton Grigg and Jake Harper.
“The St Clair Comets have a long history of providing their players with the best possible training and facilities,” Tanya Davies said.
“Many A-grade NRL players started out in the Comets and this funding will see the Comets continue to train great football players.”
“It was a pleasure to join the players on Saturday and to continue to support them by providing this grant.”
Tanya Davies also met with Luke Gibson, Nathan Corbett and Robert Henderson and congratulated each of them on their 300 game record with the St Clair Comets.
Darren Mudford, Club President, thanked Tanya Davies for her support on behalf of the Club.
“The St Clair Comets are very grateful to Tanya Davies for supporting our club and our 800 junior rugby league players,” Darren Mudford said.
“The grant from the Community Building Partnership program is much appreciated by all our juniors players.”
The installation of the 120,000 litre underground water tank will replace the existing 21,000 litre water tank, to provide better field irrigation and ensure the fields are maintained all year round.
The $15,000 grant was provided through the Community Building Partnerships Program.
The next round of Community Building Partnership is now open until Friday 15 June 2018. For community organisations looking to apply, please visit: www.nsw.gov.au/cbp
