After numerous milestones and achievements along the way it feels like the end is almost in sight for the Strathalbyn Football Club Community Development.

The change room and umpires facilities have been complete for nearly 12 months now as has the kitchen and canteen areas.

Now after a full and busy year the downstairs part is almost finished with the fit out of the new bar area just about completed as are the new toilet facilities and barbeque/café part. A little further demolition inside to remove the old bathrooms and a couple of walls will make way for new floor coverings and the completion of this function area will then complete.

The observer will have noticed windows going in upstairs section but will have not been able to see the walls, ceilings and the work in the bathrooms in the top floor, this has been happening over the last month or so and this area changes from week to week.

The Club has achieved all this so far with its own funds and a number of grants from the Council, the Office of Sport and Recreation and the AFL. This along with help from the Strathalbyn Branch of the RSL, who will move in upstairs shortly into the new year, has gone a long way toward the development.

However included in part of the planning for the project was an allowance to borrow up to $400,000 to help with the project with a total build cost of close to 2.5 million dollars.

The Club has formulated a unique plan to raise these funds which will be used to put the finishing touches on this project which will enhance and fill a huge role within the community. With this they are offering private investors to provide funds to the club and are offering an interest rate to the investor of 5% per annum. This is fixed at this rate for the three year term of the loan.

A number of people, from within the clubs existing membership, have already taken up this offer and now this offer has been opened up to other interested parties. If you would like to see what is involved and more detail there are prospectuses and contracts are available from the club, on their website or by contacting the Secretary on 0428173785.

It is also comforting to know that part of the upstairs area of the development, that was to be rented out to help with the ongoing costs and to help service any debt, has been tenanted on a long term lease to a local organisation that will be use this area as intended to service the community, especially young people, into the future.

The appointment of a facility manager and branding of the facility as Club Strathalbyn has started to see the facility promoted far and wide and some bookings are already coming the clubs way. There is a new face book page and other details are currently on the Football Club’s website with a Club Strathalbyn site currently being developed.

Grand Final

Well the footy season is over for another year unless of course you count the SANFL or AFL then you have another couple of weeks of finals to go to or just follow.

Peckings congratulates Mt Compass on a great year and a well-deserved and hard won Premiership last Saturday. The whole Grand Final day was well run by the Encounter Bay Football Club who also had the extra load with their A Grade team playing on the day.

The Roosters are already in planning mode for 2017 with the wheels in motion at the Club looking at who might play on, who might retire, who might leave. Then looking at recruits with the Player Payment cap and Player Points Scheme looking down on the club. It is will all those permutations that the Club needs to

Preliminary Final

Well that is the end of that – knocked out in the Preliminary Final by the smallest of margins… The Roosters had their chances and with the siren imminent could have iced the game. But some things just don’t happen to script and like everything in this game you make your opportunities and you must then take your opportunities.

Saturday’s game was a game of inches and with the quarter break scores all within a point of two at each turn it was always delicately balanced. And those few missed opportunities like the bad decisions were all, in the scheme of things, important little percentage points in that kind of close game.

Well done to the players, well done to the support staff and well done to the supporters that headed off to not only this big game but all the other games throughout the season and to all points of the Fleurieu and enjoyed watching the Rooster boys play the game that is so dear to us all.
