Committee member Les Porter said the club was thrilled with the $5000 Telstra AFL grassroots grant and had discussed plans with the City of Wanneroo for a meeting room to display its memorabilia.

‘Our memorabilia is currently sitting in boxes in our homes,’ he said.

‘All we have at the moment is a changing room and canteen.

‘The grant will be a fantastic boost so we can improve facilities, helping to keep young people playing footy in the area and for our club to develop.’

Mr Porter said the money would also help the club establish an under-18 team.
