Win for Raptor females

ROSELANDS Raptors Football Club will soon have a safe place for females to prepare for training and games after securing a $48,000 grant to upgrade the club’s homeground at Bennett Park.

The NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership grant will also be used to install security lighting around the clubhouse.
Hardworking and passionate Club Treasurer Kylie Kegg and Club President Luca Circelli were ecstatic with the news Bennett Park was set to receive a decent facelift for the upcoming grassroots season and as a way to celebrate their 50th anniversary this year.
“This is a huge win for us at Roselands FC as it will mean that all our participants will be able to utilise a cleaner and safer amenities block when work is complete,” Kegg said.
“We want to thank the local Canterbury Bankstown City council as well as CDSFA (Canterbury District Soccer Football Association) for their assistance with this as we prepare for what will be a monumental year as our club celebrates 50 years of existence in 2022.
“With the FIFA Women’s World Cup only 18 months away, change room upgrades will be the perfect addition to Roselands FC to ensure they can provide a safe and secure place for female participants.”
