Manjit Sidhu steps down from Woolgoolga Sport Council presidency, handing baton to Steel Beveridge
AT THE recent annual general meeting of the Woolgoolga Sport Council, attended by representatives of Rugby League, Athletics, Football (Soccer), Six-a-side, Cricket and Touch Football, office bearers were elected and annual reports presented.
With Manjit Sidhu stepping down as president, Steel Beveridge was elected to the office. Beveridge will serve as publicity officer and co-ground manager at Woolgoolga Sportsground.
Peter Holmes was re-elected as secretary and David Dodsworth as treasurer, public officer and overall ground manager with special emphasis on Centennial Reserve.
Ground allocation was made for the summer season with Cricket allocated the Clive Joass Fields and Centennial Reserve with Six-a-side also allocated the Clive Joass Fields.
The lower of these fields may become unavailable during the season as Council intends to carry out extensive drainage works during the second half of the season.
Woolgoolga Sportsground was allocated to Athletics (on Monday for Seniors, Tuesday for Little Athletics and Friday for training) and Touch Football (on Wednesdays).
Athletics was allocated January 12 and 13, 2019, for its annual Track & Field Carnival.
The Sportsground will benefit from an upgrading of the lighting thanks to local and State government funding.
Schools have the use of all fields during school hours and outside bodies can book use with the Sports Council through David Dodsworth after checking with local schools and other users for availability.
Thanks was expressed to Manjit Sidhu for his service as president with the hope he will remain an interested party of Sports Council activity into the future.
Woolgoolga Sports Council membership fees are now due for all local sporting clubs and ground fees will be sent out to clubs shortly.
