Valleys to host Wallabys for club day at revamped ground

VALLEYS Diehards Junior Rugby League Club will be training hard and preparing for this weekend's club day against Wallabys.

Junior president Wal Wilson can't wait for the club day, which is an opportunity for the players and supporters to see just how much work has been done at Valleys' home ground.

Having the juniors and seniors playing together not only creates a great atmosphere but it is hoped the younger players will be inspired to keep playing the game.

Receiving a QGC grant last year Valleys Sports Club has recently constructed a new multi-purpose clubhouse. All funds raised will go towards completing the internal fit-out.

The junior club continues growing steadily in numbers to about 250 members this year, and the seniors have about 80 members.

The growth in the club will be evident this weekend, when for the first time Valleys Diehards will host all grades at their home ground.

Seniors president Kieran Lawler said it was a significant milestone in the club's resurgence and invited all past players, officials, supporters and sponsors to a great day of rugby league.

The under-6s kick-off at 8am, Saturday and the A-grade at 6.45pm.
