WORKS are underway to revamp the home of Seaford’s football, netball, and cricket clubs.
The redevelopment of RF Miles Reserve, projected to cost over $9 million to taxpayers and ratepayers, kicked off 22 April. The completed project will feature a two-storey pavilion, a larger oval, a new netball court, and new cricket nets.
Works on car parking and the addition of oval lighting, a scoreboard, and a coaches box will also form part of the works.
Seaford Football Netball Club president Dale O’Neil said “the club is very excited for the brand new pavilion and oval to be built. To have the availability for netball to train and play from the venue is something we couldn’t imagine happening without the assistance from the council, state, and federal governments.”
Women’s team president Sheridan Howe said “we have seen a growing number of women wanting to play at our destination club. I am looking forward to having female-friendly facilities at our home ground and can’t wait for the redevelopment to be finished.”
RF Miles Reserve had been taken over by level crossing removal works, resulting in the Seaford Football Club playing home games at Belvedere Reserve.
