It’s been a busy period for Southern Districts Football Association side Bonnyrigg FC who are preparing for the recommencement of the 2020 Community Football season but have used the down period to upgrade one of its new temporary homes in Tarlington Reserve.
With player numbers surging in recent years stemming from Under 6’s right up to the All Men and Women, the popular club, who utilise Bonnyrigg Sports Field and Whitlam Park, were in need of another location due to the rise in numbers.
Club President Rad Sucur worked tirelessly with his committee in conjunction with Fairfield City Council in the hope of finding another temporary home and to their excitement, Mayor Frank Carbone allocated Tarlington Reserve.
The facility itself gained an upgrade in which included new showers and toilets, canteen, storerooms and a back to base alarm as well as the update to its pitch and new lightning.
On top of assisting the Bonnyrigg FC club with hosting more training sessions for its ever-growing participants, the upgrade will also benefit the local community who too will be able to use the fields.
Southern Districts Football Association Technical Director Rod Galic praised the synergy between local council and Bonnyrigg FC in providing more facilities for the world game in the area.
“With the use of Tarlington Reserve no doubt the club will grow even further and be able to provide excellent facilities for our local footballers.
“This is a prime example when a footballing committee and local government come together to plan a win-win scenario for all involved.
“Congratulations to the Board of Bonnyrigg FC and Fairfield City Council for making this all possible.”
