STFA aims for improvements

Goulburn’s Southern Tablelands Football Association has big plans for its competitions and the facilities, particularly at the Cookbundoon Sports Fields.

Competition administrator and committee member Jeff Norman said the executive had a bucket list of considerable size they were looking to achieve over the next few years.

During the off season a chain mesh fence was erected to separate the small side fields on the north western corner of Cookbundoon from the car park.

Its purpose was to improve safety by stopping youngsters running directly off the fields and into the path of cars moving around the car park and to reduce the number of balls from going out of the fields into the car park.

“There are more of these safety measures coming,” Mr Norman said. “Facility improvements cost money but we are investigating how to achieve our goals.

“We have also been looking to improve the competition and attract more players to the game as well as hopefully retain players in the 14 to 20 age bracket. We have introduced girls only games for under-8s to encourage more female players and a girls only competition too.

“I am organising competition draws and we still have some reshuffling, but I expect the draws to be finalised in the next week or two.”
