Cobram Roar funding announcement welcomed
Wednesday 20 February 2019
Nationals Member for Ovens Valley Tim McCurdy has welcomed a funding announcement for the Cobram Roar Soccer Club.
“I am delighted the Cobram Roar Soccer Club will finally get long awaited club rooms,” Mr McCurdy said.
“I was in attendance today when Lino Saputo announced his company’s funding contribution to the Cobram community soccer precinct project.
“A five-way partnership between the club, federal and state governments, Moira Shire Council and Saputo means the dream of these much-needed facilities will become a reality for Cobram Roar.
“This is a local project that has been many years in the making and I am so pleased to have played my part in this outstanding outcome.”
Mr McCurdy said Cobram Soccer had been in existence for 60 years and the club has been operating without clubrooms all that time.
“Soccer had the largest following of any sport in Cobram so this new facility will make a huge difference,” he said.
