Friday Night Football at Morshead.

A BIG thank you to the City of Ballarat for allowing more games to be played on the Arena Pitch at Morshead Park.

Bacchus Marsh made the trip up the highway for a Friday night game against North United on the 9.6.17. It was great to see the very young Bacchus Marsh team playing on the best soccer pitch in Western Victoria. Well done to the girls and Coaching staff, they kept playing right until the whistle. Great team work and great sports.

The Pitch has been offered to other clubs, hopefully Clubs can make the most of the opportunity.

Wendouree West Recreation Reserve draft plan

City of Ballarat is currently working with a number of organisations and the local community on the creation of a new master plan and business case for the Wendouree West Recreation Reserve. The draft plan proposes the construction of a new community hub to house Forest Ranger Soccer Club, the Wendouree Neighbourhood Centre and an outreach site for Ballarat YMCA.  The proposal also includes a significant redevelopment of the soccer facilities with pitch resurfacing, drainage and irrigation, and the installation of floodlights. The draft plan sets out a vision for the future and is scheduled to be complete by the end of May 2017.
