On Saturday 07 April 2018, the Abbotsford Juniors Football Club welcomed a new amenities building to Campbell Park, Chiswick.
Minister Laundy, who was present at the building’s opening, had secured $1 million of funding for Abbotsford in 2016 to ensure that the development of Campbell Park was a success.
The president of the Abbotsford Juniors Football Club Gilbert Lorquet is grateful to have attained this Federal funding for his Club and community. “Today the world class quality and standard of our clubhouse finally matches our ambitions and need of the community,” Lorquet said, before the building was officially launched.
The Abbotsford Juniors Football Club has broken new ground in the last few years. In 2018, the club has registered 1,072 players across 82 teams, and are now the largest Club in the City of Canada Bay and the 4th largest club in the Canterbury District. They have also seen Women’s Football grow in the last 5 years, with 4 Women’s teams and 15 Girls teams this season. Last season they made history with the first ever win in Football NSW’s Champion of Champions, with their Under 18s becoming the best in the State. These achievements reflect Reid’s outstanding sporting accomplishments, and the new facilities will only further support the community in their successes.
