Families in Newcomb will be able to rely on great local sporting facilities, with a re-elected Andrews Labor Government to deliver $50,000 to Grinter Reserve in Moolap.                  

Home to the Newcomb Power Football Club, record levels of participation and a growing number of teams mean an upgrade is desperately needed.           

Over the past few years, the club has introduced award winning junior programs which work with local schools.

That is why Labor will provide funding for master planning to improve the clubrooms and grounds, and for new storage facilities.

This will give the club the space they need to grow, store equipment and provide greater flexibility to train and win coveted silverware.        

Building better facilities for players, coaches, volunteers and fans will encourage more locals to get involved at this great club, which shares the reserve with the Newcomb Power Netball Club and Newcomb Cricket Club.  

Today’s commitment builds on the Andrews Labor Government’s investments to provide new jumpers for the women’s team at Newcomb Power Football Netball Club, as well as more training for coaches and umpires.   

With this planning from Labor, this local club – and the community – will be able to get the great sporting facilities they deserve.             

While the Liberals cut funding for hospitals and schools, and closed TAFE campuses – only Labor will invest in the projects our community really needs.  

The Labor Government has delivered the biggest investment in women’s and community sport in Victoria’s history, with $420 million dedicated to grassroots sports.
