Coun­cil to al­low club 11 games at park

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Westernopinion - By ROSANNA CANDLER

SUBIACO Am­a­teur Foot­ball Club (AFC) will hold 11 Na­tional Pre­mier League (NPL) games at Ros­alie Park this year, Subiaco Coun­cil de­cided last month.

Subiaco res­i­dent He­len Leeder said the coun­cil should have re­fused the mo­tion, as there should be no fenc­ing on Ros­alie Park “be it per­ma­nent, tem­po­rary or a bound­ary ad­just­ment”.

“It is not hard to be­lieve that this en­tire con­sul­ta­tion was done to achieve a re­sult en­tirely for one sport­ing group,” Ms Leeder said.

Subiaco AFC sec­re­tary Brad Forbes said their re­quest for tem­po­rary bar­ri­ers and seat­ing was rea­son­able.

“We have many vol­un­teers to help us in­stall and re­move the fenc­ing on the day of the match,” he said.

Cr Stephanie Stroud said the City of Subiaco should not pass up the op­por­tu­nity for the games to bring more im­por­tance and vi­brancy to the City.

“At a time where we are lament­ing the loss of the AFL (at Subiaco Oval), here we have the NPL (want­ing) to come to Subiaco,” she said.
