Member for Kiama Gareth Ward has announced funding for the Jamberoo Superoos Junior Rugby League Football Club for a mobile interchange and scorers facility.

Mr Ward said that he was extremely pleased to have secured this funding under the State Government’s 2022-23 Local Sport Grant Program.

“I’m really pleased we’ve been able to secure this funding. It’s not a cost to government but an investment in another great local sporting facility here in Jamberoo,” Mr Ward said.

“The Jamberoo Superoos Junior Rugby League Football Club strengthens our local community through its various junior footy teams.

“The Superoos is an incredibly popular local community hub where the Club President Ron Prior, many local junior players, their parents, coaches, trainers and volunteers all come together to support each other on the footy field, and I’m delighted that this funding will help to make a positive difference with this mobile interchange and scorers facility.

“As your local MP, I love rolling my sleeves up, getting stuck in and working hard and getting things done for our local sporting and community groups,” he said.

“Having worked closely with many local sporting clubs over many years, I know just how important these grants are to help to ensure that we can provide the best possible facilities across our region.

“As your local MP, I will keep fighting hard to deliver even more grants and upgrades to local sporting infrastructure in Jamberoo – and right across the Kiama electorate to ensure that our local community receives its fair share of government funding which they deserve,” Mr Ward concluded.

The President of the Jamberoo Superoos Junior Rugby League Football Club, Mr Ron Prior, also welcomed the funding delivered for his local footy club.

“These big mobile gazebos are great for our junior players especially because with some of our weekend games kicking off at 8am on a Saturday morning when its raining and freezing cold in the middle of winter months – our junior players are now better protected and the safety element improves as well from a duty of care perspective because we know exactly where each of the junior players are at all times,” Mr Prior said.

“The opposition junior players who visit from say Berry or Bomaderry will also be better off and protected with these new mobile interchange and scorers facilities as will the local referees and touch judges who visit our club as will also be able to use these new facilities.

“Our Jamberoo Superoos Juniors are very grateful to have been approved to receive this funding,” Ron said.

“We also greatly appreciate the hard work and efforts of our local Member Gareth Ward in helping to secure this funding from the State Government.

“Gareth was very upfront and transparent with our club – he didn’t make any hollow promises – he just got straight on with the job of assisting us which we really appreciated,” Mr Prior concluded.
