If you're local you may notice that the Citizens park Club rooms have now been completely rebuilt and commissioned, with the Junior Footy Club very happy, we will be taking over for the new cricket season. The Citizens Park oval has been a hive of activity the last couple of years, with the ground being relaid (new ground work, sprinkler plumbing and new wicket tables laid), the club rooms demolished and rebuilt and finally the former plaza across the road being rebuilt. It's going to be an exciting season in our new facilities!
Looking forward to seeing you at training!
