St David’s scores with Liberal funding

An elected Liberal Government will contribute $40,000 towards a new scoreboard at Donvale Reserve.

Donvale Reserve is home to St David’s Cricket Club, a successful club, with a history that spans over 50 years.

Hosting a range of seniors and juniors teams, as well as a training program for girls and boys, St David’s has been a significant part of the community for many years.

The addition of a scoreboard at St David’s home ground will add to the professionalism of the Club, and contribute to engaging players and spectators alike in the achievements of the teams during matches.

The Liberals are committed to engaging the next generation in sports and activities. 

Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Sport, Danny O’Brien:  

“Ryan Smith is a great advocate for his local clubs and has worked hard to secure this funding.

Unlike Daniel Andrews who has decided to give the AFL a massive $225 million free kick to upgrade facilities at Etihad Stadium, the Liberal Nationals are getting behind our local sporting clubs.”

Comments attributable to Member for Warrandyte, Ryan Smith:

“It has been a pleasure to sponsor this great Club, whose Committee is engaged and passionate.

While Daniel Andrews is determined to fund the plans of the AFL, only a Liberal Government will direct funding to grassroots sport that are such a huge part of our local communities.”
