Football club back after theft
BINGERA Football Club has bounced back after the theft of playing strips at the end of last season and is ready to hit the ground running.
Club junior registrar Angela Tranent said new strips had been purchased and that it was “full steam ahead”.
They will hold a junior and senior sign-on at their Queen Street grounds, North Bundaberg tomorrow (Sunday) from 10am-2pm.
Tranent said the theft of the strips was “heart-breaking” especially because they had only been purchased earlier in the year through sponsorship received from Bundaberg Radiology.
“But new ones have been bought at much expense to the club, although new sponsors have helped cover the costs,” Tranent said.
“We have also installed security in the clubhouse to try and make sure it doesn't happen again.
“We have censor lights, an alarm system and stronger security doors,” Tranent said.
The sign-on will be for under-6 upwards and new players are welcome.
Players will also be able to join the club during Football Bundaberg's combined clubs' sign-on at Martens Oval next Sunday from 4-6pm.
The new season will start on March 11 and 12.
