NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall has announced a $167,697 State Government Grant for the Tingha Tigers Rugby League Football Club to undertake some upgrades to their home ground at the end of this season.

Mr Marshall said the grant was secured under the last round of the NSW Stronger Country Communities Fund and would be primarily used to help build new canteen facilities for home ground crowds.

“In Tingha, rugby league is followed devoutly every weekend by the vast majority of the local community,” Mr Marshall said.

“Sports like football are essential to fuel community pride and to provide activity for the town’s young people.

“Congratulations to James Sheather and the members of the Tingha Tigers footy club who have worked hard to secure this grant.

“The Club will use the money to construct new amenities and kiosk facilities and other smaller improvements to the ground.

“I have no doubt these upgrades will be enjoyed by spectators and players alike.

“The Tingha Club has a proud history and a bright future.

“While these improvements won’t be ready in time for this season, they will be ready in time for the 2024 season.

“Upgrading the canteen signals that this little community is consolidating its long and fruitful association with rugby league.”

Tingha Tigers President James Sheather warmly welcomed the funding and said he was excited for the project to get underway later this year.
