PIARA Waters Junior Football Club now has two ovals to call home after securing the new Rossiter Pavilion for their youngest players.

The City of Armadale announced the club as the winter season user of the newly-opened pavilion and playing field after a registration of interest period.

Currently based out of the Piara Waters Pavilion, club president Elena Mustard said the club had grown substantially from their inception in 2013, from just 53 members to this season’s 382.

“The facilities are awesome but the second oval is a space we desperately needed,” she said.

“On the weekends our Auskick teams will be playing at the new facilities, which would mean 12 teams of around 190 players will play there either on a Sunday morning or Friday Night under lights.

“Our Auskick teams will train at this venue as well and in addition, this will also be an over flow training area for our junior teams.

“By having this second facility our club will be able to cater for the all the girls and boys that want to play Australian Rules Football close to home.”

Armadale mayor Henry Zelones said it was great this new facility could help a local club grow.

“This is an exciting opportunity for the club,” he said.

“They will now be able to expand to a two-location club, and utilise the ground extensively and continue to grow their membership substantially.”
