PERTH SOCCER CLUB SCORES FUNDING FOR CHANGE ROOMS

Perth Soccer Club Inc has been approved to receive $20,000 of funding under the Stronger Communities Programme for the construction of female change rooms at the club rooms on Lawley Street in West Perth.

“This is a great result for the club and its supporters,” said Mr Hammond.

“This issue was raised with me on many occasions during the recent election campaign and I am delighted that the club has been successful in securing funding.”

“A lack of facilities is always an obstacle to improving female participation so I am delighted that this funding has been made available.

As a Dad with 2 young daughters, I know how important it is to make sure that girls have every opportunities to pursue sports they enjoy without having to worry about whether there are appropriate changing areas,” Mr Hammond said.

The club has received the funding under Round 2 of the Stronger Communities Programme that aims to provide assistance for small capital works projects that benefit the local community.

“I look forward to seeing construction start and for the female players at the club to be able to make use of the facilities in the near future,” said Mr Hammond.

Mr Hammond visited the club on Friday to tour the site of the proposed facilities with Club President Gary Marocchi.
