Comets get new-look field

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

ERSK­INE Park’s Pep­pertree Park has un­der­gone a makeover af­ter the State Govern­ment granted the grounds a $30,000 upgrade.

The St Clair Comets wel­comed changes to their home ground as the area was be­com­ing haz­ardous to play­ers.

Mul­goa state Lib­eral MP Tanya Davies said the rugby league club had pur­chased large sand­stone blocks to line the field and pre­vent fur­ther flood­ing.

Long-serv­ing club sec­re­tary Bill Borg said rain and flood­ing were caus­ing huge prob­lems on the field.

“Ev­ery time we had heavy rain, it would cause prob­lems for us. Dirt and loose soil would be all across the play­ing sur­faces, plac­ing play­ers in dan­ger­ous po­si­tions,” Mr Borg said.

“Now, we can­not get over how much bet­ter the fields will be. Not to men­tion how great they look and the ex­tra seat­ing they pro­vide for par­ents and fam­ily.”
