Take a seat and cheer on the Wombats!

23 March 2020 |Community news

As we’re all very aware, sporting calendars have been turned upside down in recent weeks, but in welcome news for Cooroora United Football Club a long-time sponsor delivered on a promise that will transform how local fans watch the game.

The Cooroy and Pomona Community Bank branches of Bendigo Bank have added to the decade long list of projects it has supported the club with by helping purchase two mobile grandstands to seat the club faithful at home games.

Club president, Tony McCarthy said the structures are a brilliant asset for CUFC.

“This is the latest sign of our club’s increasing strength and commitment to improving facilities for our loyal members and visitors alike,” Tony shared.
“These two little beauties are another small representation of an evolving, long-term plan for the Wombats and our place within the Hinterland community. We simply couldn’t have done this without Bendigo Bank’s superb support and we’re delighted at the backing they continue to show our club. They’ll allow a place to sit, relax and enjoy some football in a family friendly environment,” he said.
The glue that holds the club together is the work of so many great volunteers who assist the hard-working committee in getting many teams out there enjoying their football. The hope is the season can start soon after Easter and all the training can turn into some game time.

Joining some of the teams before training last week was Cooroy and Pomona Community Bank branch manager, Simone Flavelle. She said Bendigo Bank is delighted to be supporting the club for the 2020 season.

“We’ve been proud sponsors for many years - from helping purchase club strips to the free Cooroora United app, and now these great new grandstands. We’re here to support those who support us by choosing to bank with us. It’s something we all love being part of,” Simone said.
“The club is filled with so many great locals and you can feel the family atmosphere every time you come here. We wish all the teams a great season once the green light is given for the games to be played. Go the Wombats!” she concluded.
Anyone looking to become involved with Cooroora United can do so by contacting the club through any of the numbers on its website.
