Little leaguers see the light

AND let there be light.

The Past Brother Junior Rugby League Club turned on their lights on Saturday night, after months of construction and fundraising.

The club now has two lights erected at the fields.

The club vice-president and owner of JTB Electrical, Jason Burns, was happy to see the lighting project coming to an end.

"It is great to finally see these two lighting poles up and functioning," he said.

The project was funded by the club through fundraising events and sponsorships, and although the lights are up, there is more to be done.

"We have council approval for eight light poles, we have two," he said.

"Our aim now, as a club is to work with the community and through corporate sponsors to get all eight lights installed."

The fields will be used by club players for training and in future games.

"It will be great to be able to use the fields on Tuesday and Thursday nights," Burns said.

"Both the juniors and seniors will now be able to train here on our three fields and will do so from this week. In future it would be great to hold some carnivals and who knows, one day even (host) some other codes."

Brothers are looking forward to the 2012 season which starts on March 16.

Training is held on Tuesday and Thursday nights at the club's grounds on Blain Park, Callemondah.

"We are chasing anyone who is interested in playing rugby league," he said.

"In particular we need players in the under-14, 16 and 18 age groups. We also need a coach for the under-7s."
