The Broken Hill Football League has announced the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union will contribute $40,000 to the continued upgrade of Jubilee Oval.
League chairman David Sedunary says the money will go towards installing a digital scoreboard, as well as upgrading the lights around the oval.
He says it will not just benefit the football league, but a range of different sports that also use the oval.
“Not only helping Aussie Rules, they’re helping cricket because we’ll have cricket there, we have softball there … school football’s played there, soccer people train there, well they did previously, there has been some baseball played there and also we’re going to have rugby league as well, it’s been very helpful and I think it’s been just a situation … [of] appreciation of all the sport that’s gone around Broken Hill,” he said.
In other football news, the Lightning Preseason Cup will be held tomorrow, with all four of the league’s teams taking part.
