SOCCER players along the Coast will have access to all-weather grounds if the Liberals win the election.

Liberal candidate for Braddon Brett Whiteley and Senator Richard Colbeck announced yesterday the Liberals would provide $1.1 million for the upgrade of the Devonport City Soccer Club grounds.

This upgrade would include two new all- weather pitches, which could be offered for use to schools and sporting codes along the Coast.

“The Devonport City Soccer Club grounds benefit families right across the North-West Coast with more than 16 teams utilising the ground every day of the week, including a significant number of junior players. This is a welcome commitment for our local community,” Mr Whiteley said.

Devonport City Soccer Club coach Chris McKenna said there were a lot of young people that went through the soccer club, with 16 teams representing Devonport.

An all-weather soccer ground would mean that when the North and the North-West of Tasmania experienced wet conditions, as it has in the last few weeks, there would be a viable alternative.

Federal Member for Braddon Sid Sidebottom was happy to hear about the Liberals’ funding announcement for the Devonport City Soccer Club.

“I haven’t been approached [by the club], but I would be more than happy to look at it when we win [the election],” Mr Sidebottom said.
