Campbelltown Uniting Church Soccer Club will kick off their new football season next month on two newly resurfaced fields at their home ground of Lynwood Park.
Campbelltown City Council undertook work in January to restabilise fields three and four, at the rear of the St Helens Park soccer complex, following concerns about significant land movement impacting the playing surface of the fields.
Council funded the $160,000 project, in partnership with the Uniting Church Soccer Club, which received a NSW Government Community Building Partnership grant of almost $25,000.
The project included new perimeter fencing, restabilising, levelling and returfing of both fields.
The improvements follow last year’s opening of a state of the art synthetic turf football field at Lynwood Park, the first in the Campbelltown local government area, and one of a limited number in Sydney.
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, welcomed the upgrade, saying football was one of the most popular sports in the Macarthur region.
“Campbelltown Uniting Church Soccer Club alone boasts 27 teams and more than 360 members, from minis to seniors.
“Council recognises the importance of recreational facilities in promoting exercise and good health within our community.
“These improvements will ensure our local footballers are able to access a high quality facility which enables them to pursue their passion, and a healthy lifestyle.”
