On Saturday 29 July 2017, local State MP for Mulgoa Tanya Davies was again a welcomed visitor to Bill Anderson Reserve, Kemps Creek, accompanied on this occasion by the NSW Minister for Sport and neighbouring MP for Penrith, Stuart Ayres.
The Club was privileged to again obtain more funding for the upgrade of the Floodlighting on Field Two. Club Treasurer Michael Furfaro was on hand to greet the MPs and together with Club representatives and the Under 9s Girls team accepted the cheque for $10,000. Furfaro emphasising the Club’s gratitude to the ongoing assistance received.
“We are very appreciative of the support the Club receives from Tanya and the State Government, and sincerely thank both Ministers, Tanya and Stuart for taking time from their busy schedules to visit the Club,” Furfaro said.
“This funding will enable us to finally complete this important project,” he added.
Club President Ross Maiorana also welcomed the financial boost. “Every time we’ve needed some help with funds, Tanya has been able to assist. It was a pleasure showcasing our facilities and how the Club operates to Tanya and the Sports Minister. This is a project we can now complete, and further improve the facilities at our ground,” said Maiorana.
It is expected the new lights will be operational in time for the 2018 season.
