Sports club scores grant

SOCCER players can now kick goals at Meteor Sports Club, who are happy to shift the goal posts.

The club recently took possession of two portable soccer goals and nets.

Meteors Sports Club president Richie Hyne said the purchase occurred due to a Gambling Community Benefit Fund grant of $6800.

“In terms of value to the club, they’re significant as we try and attract more sporting clubs to the venue,” Hyne said.

Soil testing is being done next week and the club is looking at spending between $10-12,000 on redoing the playing surface.

Major sponsor Coffee Club’s Salesh and Fareen Ramswarup were generous donors and helped the club as it looks to become a multi-purpose sporting venue.
