Pi­rates all a board

Fremantle Gazette - - SPORT -

THE girls at Piara Wa­ters Ju­nior Foot­ball Club can now look up dur­ing a match to check the score­board - hope­fully to see how much their team is lead­ing by.

The club scored a $1000 grant this year from Stockland’s Si­enna Wood com­mu­nity and put the money towards the new trans­portable de­vice and some weather-shel­ter­ing gaze­bos.

“We pre­vi­ously didn’t have a score­board avail­able for their games and we’ve def­i­nitely seen that the teams have liked hav­ing their scores dis­played dur­ing matches,” club pres­i­dent Amy Dim­itri­je­vich said.

“The fund­ing from Stockland was also used to pur­chase gaze­bos to keep the play­ers dry or out of the sun be­tween games and so that the par­ents can watch from the side­lines.”

Stockland awarded $276,000 in grants this year to 266 lo­cal groups, clubs and pro­grams across Aus­tralia that sup­port health, well­be­ing, com­mu­nity con­nec­tion, ed­u­ca­tion or lo­cal en­vi­ron­men­tal ini­tia­tives.
