SCORE: South Whyalla Cricket Club president Allan Woolford said a $3800 state government Active Club Program grant would help the club move forward.
South Whyalla Cricket Club will continue to grow after receiving a $3800 state government Active Club Program grant to go towards new equipment, uniforms and club promotion.
South Whyalla Cricket Club president Allan Woolford said the grant would help build the A grade side since its reintroduction into the competition in 2013.
Mr Woolford said the club committee was in discussion over how to spend the grant but said the funding boost would help move the club forward, with new cricket netsalso completed late last year.
South Whyalla Cricket Club was one of six successful applicants in the Eyre Peninsula and West Coast region during the second round of grants for 2014/15.
Other successful clubs include Iron Knob Golf Club, Cleve District Bowling Club, Kapinnie Mount Hope Cricket Club, Lock Football Club and Streaky Bay Tennis Club.
Recreation and Sport minister Leon Bignell said sport clubs played a key role in the health and welfare of communities throughout the state.
“Sport is often at the heart of community life, especially in regional areas,” he said.
“The Active Club Program helps our sport and recreation clubs to continue to deliver the programs and services they provide to their respective communities.”
