  • Four new lights installed at Inalls Lane Soccer field with another five lights on the way
  • Lighting upgrade will let the club host matches and train at night
  • The Coalition Government invested $20,000 toward the project

Footballers in the Hawkesbury region now have access to better soccer fields, after the installation of four lights at Inalls Lane field, home of the Colo Soccer Football Club.

Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Darren Chester said the next part of the project will see another five lights to be installed by January, allowing local athletes to train and play well into the night.

“Grassroots sport is an important part of building stronger communities, and I'm very pleased to be able to deliver $20,000 to Colo Soccer Club to help install the new lights,” Mr Chester said.

“The project will give more training and playing time for the 2,300 players who use the ground every year.”

Senator for New South Wales Marise Payne joined members of the Colo Soccer Football Club to celebrate the installation of the new lights this evening.

“The new lights at Inalls Lane field will give the Colo team more opportunities for night competitions and evening training sessions,” Senator Payne said.

“The project involved removing the ground's old lights and installing an underground cabling system and more powerful and efficient lights on existing poles.”

This project was jointly funded through the Federal Coalition Government's Community Development Grants Programme ($20,000), and the Colo Soccer Football Club ($7,000).
