Update field, clubhouse for AFL’s return in style

WESTS Juniors will have good reason to be jumping for joy when the AFL club returns to playing footy in July.

Not only will they get back to playing the game they love but they’ll be doing it in style at their newly-completed clubhouse at Wagener Oval, Ashbury
Canterbury-Bankstown Mayor Khal said the new clubhouse was part of a major project which also replaced the existing field and provided for new improved lighting.
“This project is a real game-changer and I hope it will attract more women to the sport,” Mayor Asfour said.
“Along with the new club house, there are new change rooms that cater for both sexes. “Plus showers, toilets a new carpark and improved access for wheelchairs and prams.
“This is a fantastic new facility and I am sure each of the club’s teams will enjoy what we have delivered.”
Wests Juniors AFL Vice President Paul Ryan said he appreciated the council’s engagement with the club throughout the project.
“Our club has 18 teams, six of which are female, so I think they’ll love what has been done,” Mr Ryan said.
Mayor Asfour says this is just one of many projects the council is undertaking to improve sporting fields across the City.
“We are also upgrading nine other sporting fields with new facilities such as, lighting, change rooms and playing surfaces,” he said.
“Ewen Park, Garrison Point Reserve, and Deverall Park are just a few will be working on in the next few months.
“As Covid restrictions continue to ease, we’re seeing more of the community out using our parks, so we want to ensure we provide the best experience for them.”
