Campbelltown Collegians Football Club may be more than 40 years old, but they continue to have their eyes cast to the future and development of the world game in Macarthur.

The club has taken strides to help revitalise the club and maintain their friendly club atmosphere.

Their canteen facilities at Rosemeadow Playing Fields in Ambarvale have been upgraded by Campbelltown Council while fencing around the grounds and installation of additional lighting is planned to be completed.

Club secretary Alison Tonna said the club’s main focus this season would be on the safety of their players.

‘‘The construction of fencing will enable teams to train and play safely at our fields at Rosemeadow and will ensure that the playing surface is kept at an optimum condition without incurring damage,’’ she said. 

The Campbelltown Collegians is a great club that is definitely going places.’’

The club has 18 teams entered in this year’s Macarthur Football Association’s competition and expect greater numbers of players to enter the competition as families move into new residental areas in the region. Tonna praised the club’s volunteers and said they had dedicated themselves to make Collegians ‘‘a great club’’ in the region.

‘‘The club also values the volunteers of the club who give up their time for the club and 

its players,’’ she said.

‘‘In particular, the club offers all volunteer coaches the option to further their skills and attend training courses so that we can ensure we have some of the best coaches in the area.’’

‘‘It’s definitely a very friendly club always willing to go the extra mile to make members and visitors alike feel welcome.’’
