Kyogle Football Club is getting its oval drainage improved with $20,000 state funding.

Club treasurer and registrar Glenn Rose said the club was appreciative of the new funding.

“The soccer field and athletics oval are always the first to go under in a flood and the last to resurface, so this funding will allow us to improve our usage during wet periods and flooding events,” he said.

State MP Janelle Saffin said the club’s grounds are in one of the lowest parts of Kyogle and the upgraded drainage will enable the grounds to be back in action more quickly after heavy rain or flooding in the Richmond River.
