Junior Roosters move to new home
Woy Woy Junior Rugby League Football Club has announced it will be moving its new home ground from Woy Woy oval to Rogers Park for the 2009 season.
"This move will see an expansion of playing fields from the current two fields at Woy Woy Oval to three playing fields on Rogers Park number two," said club secretary Mr Russell Downey.
"This move to Rogers Park will give our Junior Roosters club the opportunity to have a greater number of teams playing home games, while allowing volunteers to finish their days much earlier than previously.
"We are predicting that the increased visibility of a move to Rogers Park, along with a major new development program to be run by the juniors, will see an increase in playing numbers for junior rugby league."
According to Mr Downey, the decision to move to Rogers Park had been planned for some time.
"The decision to move wasn't made overnight or taken lightly and the Woy Woy juniors committee and members had been involved in lengthy negotiations with representatives of Gosford Council, Country Rugby League and Central Coast Junior Division," Mr Downey said.
"Once the committee felt that all the boxes were ticked and importantly with the upgrade to existing amenities at Rogers Park, it can now look to future plans for Rogers Park and the development of rugby league."
In another major achievement for the junior club, Mr Downey announced the signing of a new major sponsor in the Reliance Group of Companies.
"We are also pleased to announce the signing of eight new minor sponsors and these, along with the Reliance Group, will be displayed on the brand new set of playing jerseys to be unveiled this season," Mr Downey said.
The club will hold several registration days on February 7, 8, 14 and 15 at Woy Woy Leagues Club between 11am and 2pm.
Mr Downey said registration costs remain at the 2006 price of $95 per child which included shirt, socks, shorts and insurance.
The club will also be offering sibling discounts.
