NSW Labor will provide Belmont Swansea United FC (Belswans) with over $174,000, to install lighting at Blacksmiths Oval if it wins government on March 25.
This commitment was secured by Ms Yasmin Catley MP – Member for Swansea.
The oval’s current lighting system has become outdated and needs to be upgraded to ensure the club can continue to grow.
Ms Yasmin Catley MP – Member for Swansea said, “I am pleased that a NSW Labor Government will allocate more than $174,000 to Belmont Swansea United FC, so they can upgrade lighting at Blacksmiths Oval”.
“There is no doubt the current lighting facilities are in desperate need of an upgrade to ensure the club can continue to host night time games well into the future”.
“It will truly be a great outcome for the local community if the lighting can be installed”.
“I was proud to be involved in securing this commitment”.
President of Belmont Swansea United FC, Dave Reed says, “Belmont Swansea United FC, in association with Belmont Swansea Junior FC, are delighted with this announcement to continue field improvements at Blacksmiths Oval. This lighting infrastructure will ensure that our facilities are bought up to premier football standards so we can continue to provide facilities to support our elite pathway for local players, as well as supporting our community football junior players, in south-eastern Lake Macquarie. We thank Yasmin for announcing this funding commitment and for her ongoing advocacy for our football club”
