On the early morning of Saturday 27 May 2017, Ms Tanya Davies MP, State Member for Mulgoa was a welcomed guest at a chilly Bill Anderson Reserve, presenting the Kemps Creek United Soccer Club with a cheque for $12,000. The funds were courtesy of two grants, $7,000 from Community Building Partnerships, and $5,000 from the Office of Sport, for ongoing improvements and upgrades at the park including fencing, drainage and the purchase of equipment.
Ms Davies is no stranger to Tiger territory and has been a great supporter of the Kemps Creek Club for some years now assisting with funding contributions totalling $52,000. Previous grants have been towards the field two floodlighting upgrades (still in progress), and the awning and seating project (also in progress as evidenced with seating recently installed). Before the presentation of the cheque, Ms Davies warmed up with a coffee and chat with many that were present at the event.
Club President Ross Maiorana expressed the Club’s appreciation to Ms Davies and the State Government. “Our Club has been very fortunate to have someone like Tanya promoting us and helping to improve the facilities with worthy funding contributions. The last few years have seen some good works carried out, and we hope to continue delivering the best facilities possible for our Club members and the football community.”
Bill Anderson Reserve is considered one of the best football facilities in the Association, exemplified with Football NSW allocating five Round 2, and five Round 3 State Cup fixtures over recent weekends. The Club is proud of its set-up and will continue its hard work with future improvements at the venue.
