LABOR TO FUND GROUND UPGRADE AT DUNSTAN RESERVE

An Andrews Labor Government will upgrade sports facilities at Dunstan Reserve in Brunswick West.

Member for Brunswick, Jane Garrett, today announced the news to local club members at the ground.

Victorian Labor’s $200,000 commitment for Dunstan Reserve will enable the lengthening of the northern pitch, realignment of the southern pitch and improvement to the quality of the surface.

The investment will make the northern pitch compliant for the Brunswick City Soccer Club’s participation in the NPL and better utilise available space in the southern area of the reserve. Improvements to the surface will also reduce cancellations and injuries due to pitch conditions.

 

Jane Garrett, Member for Brunswick:

“Brunswick City Soccer Club has been serving the community since 1970, now consisting of over 200 members, with over 150 junior players.”

“Labor’s plan will allow the club to better utilise the space at Dunstan Reserve and improve the quality of the pitch, allowing more play and less cancellations and injuries.”

“This investment will allow more participation in local sport for local families.”

This project will require additional investment from Moreland City Council.

Brunswick City Soccer Club, incorporating their sister club Coonans Hill Soccer Club, which is a community and family focused club. Brunswick City SC has been recently included in the National Premier League. The club has a strong multicultural base, broadened from a strong Greek heritage.
