Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced a grant of more than $3000 for Casino RSM Rugby League Football Club to purchase a new electronic digital scoreboard.
“This is great news for the community,” Mr Hogan said.
“Scoring is currently a manual process which cannot be done on bad weather days and does not include a timer that benefits spectators watching the game.
“The Senior club has 110 registered players and volunteers, while the Junior Club has more than 250 registered players.
“Given the portable nature of the scoreboard, it also provides scope for other clubs to use it.”
Cougars President Geoff Scofield said no work has been done on the scoreboard facility for the last 10 years due to limited funds.
“We are a small club so could not have done this with this Federal Government grant,” he said.
