Club gets boost

GOODYEAR Sports & Social Club have obtained grant funding from the Craigavon Sports Advisory Council (CSAC)

The funding will go towards Sports Equipment from the Craigavon Sports Advisory Council (CASC).

Noel Bibb, Secretary of the club said on learning of the award: “This is again excellent recognition for our club and for the wide range of sports we provide to a cross-section of groups and schools within the Craigavon Borough.

“This funding will go towards equipment for our Sports hall and also towards our 2 Mid-Ulster football teams. Additional specialist equipment is also going to be funded so as to assist those disabled groups using our facilities”

The Goodyear club has also been working closely in recent months with the Rural Development Council (RDC) on a project to improve the disabled access and changing/toilet facilities at the club. The work is funded by the International Fund for Ireland (IFI). In March of this year the club successfully put down a new Gerflor Sport M Plus Floor and the club has received superb feedback from users.

Tony Moore, Chairman said: “We have been working with the RDC for a couple of years now with training provided by the organisation for our club committee members in Year 1.

“We recently awarded the tender for the project to a locally based firm and it is expected the contractor will be on site shortly. To avoid disruption for our members and patrons during this period we will have measures in place to keep the Sports hall running at a reduced cost and also our social facilities will remain open throughout”

Please contact the club on (02838) 345884 for further information.

Also see if you wish your group or school to use the hall for a range of sports including 5 a side, basketball, volleyball, tug of war and netball.
