Collegians get exclusive use of new facilities

COLLEGIANS Amateur Football Club has new clubrooms after moving into the Adam Armstrong Pavilion at David Cruickshank Reserve, Dalkeith this month.

The new facility has three new change rooms including a medical room, club facilities, function space, kitchen and bar.

Club and City of Nedlands representatives, including president Edward McLarty and mayor Max Hipkins, signed an agreement on April 4 allowing the Collegians to exclusively use the facility for the next 21 years during the winter season.

Collegians redevelopment committee member John Adcock said it was the final step in the redevelopment of the site, which had taken years to achieve.

Mr Adcock said the facilities would allow the club to reposition and operate on a more professional level.

β€œThe opportunity for young men to learn how to be responsible for running and organising a club is also excellent training for future responsibilities and challenges,” he said.

Funded by the City, Department of Sport and Recreation and Collegians, the new building is a multi-functional facility that could also be hired for community groups, private events, parties and functions.
