Mayor Jenny Whitney said Council is pleased to be able to provide support to the ProserpineRugby League Football Club to bring a game from the highest calibre competition in Queenslandto Proserpine.
“The Proserpine club are looking to host a Queensland Cup game between South’s LoganMagpies and our local Q-Cup team, the Mackay Cutters, at Les Stagg Oval in Proserpine,” shesaid.
“Both teams have a strong contingent of ex-local Whitsunday Brahmans players which wouldgenerate a big local crowd and also be great for the local players to be back at their home club.
“Proserpine Rugby League Club has been recently acknowledged as drawing the largest homecrowd attendance for any club in the Mackay and Townsville competitions. The club attributes this to providing quality games and atmosphere for the public.
“As part of improving the game, the long term viability within the junior ranks, and providing quality experiences for the community, Proserpine Rugby League Football is seeking support to host a home game with the bonus addition of a Queensland Cup game.
“In addition to the Queensland Cup game, the club is looking at conducting a junior coaching clinic over the course of the weekend.
“The clinic will focus on the importance of young people’s involvement in sport, their dedication, on and off the field behaviour, basic skills and delivering the vital message that hard work andcommitment gains success not just skill alone.
“The clubs estimates hosting the Queensland Cup game and the coaching clinic are in excess of$10,000, so Council is pleased to be able to provide $5,000 in sponsorship to help the club put on this great community event,” she said.
