The Singleton Roosters’ hopes of securing a new electronic scoreboard received a huge boost thanks to a grant from the NSW State Government. Member for Upper Hunter, Michael Johnsen (pictured above with a happy flock of Roosters), paid a visit to the Chook Pen to deliver the great news. The club were successful in its application for funding under the NSW Governments’s 2018 Community Building Partnership Program, which aims to provide investment in projects that deliver social, environmental or recreational benefits to communities.
Mr Johnsen was pleased to announce that the club had secured funding of $18,291. When combined with the $11,000 that has been raised through previous grants success, the club is now only a few small steps away from realising a long-held goal. A new electronic scoreboard will replace the existing metal and magnet system, enhancing the sporting experience at Rose Point Park for spectators and players alike. The committee are now full steam ahead to complete this project, discussing various options with Council and suppliers to make our dream a reality.
Many thanks to Michael Johnsen for his support of this project and the club in general. Stay tuned for further updates and hopefully season 2019 will see a swag of Roosters’ goals tallied up on the new scoreboard!
