The Coffs Coast Advocate - - CAREERS -

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.
