Garden Suburb FC receives a grant to realign number 3 field.

The club is pleased to announce that it has received a grant through the NSW Governments “Community Building Partnership Scheme” to realign the number 3 ground to provide a second full sized field with the same dimensions as Lance Yorke.

The new ground will run east-west and it is planned to leave the old goals in place for training.

Works will involve,

  • Relocation of the Cricket Pitch to the east.
  • Turfing of the old cricket pitch area.
  • Installation of fencing along the carpark end of the field.
  • Installation of new goal posts.

it is hoped that the creation of a second full sized pitch will allow for the load to be spread from Lance Yorke while also allowing additional Friday night matches.
