The Southern Football Netball League Inc. welcomes the recent decision by Kingston Council to commit $5million towards an expanded $29million Moorabbin Reserve community football hub.
The redevelopment will provide a much needed upgrade to facilities for the SFNL, South Metro Junior Football League and provide a base for the Sandringham Dragons. It will also see the return of the St Kilda Football Club to what has been termed its ‘traditional heartland’ at Linton Street.
In addition to contributions from Kingston Council and St Kilda Football Club, the Victorian Government also announced a contribution to the project in its recently released State Budget.
SFNL Deputy Chairperson, Garry Cranny spoke in favour of the redevelopment at several Council meetings and has worked closely with the other stakeholders to develop the concept to its current stage.
“The new concept will be a wonderful addition to the Moorabbin area. It will be the first time that an AFL club, TAC team and community football leagues will share facilities and it will also provide quality parkland with new playground for the local community.” Garry explained.
“It will certainly be a great boost for local community footy with the SFNL being able to make full use of the upgraded facilities providing a quality base for umpire training, interleague training and AFL 9s. It will also become a premium finals hosting venue for the League.”
