Neil and Jennifer O’Connor decided they wanted to help out both Dubbo junior cricket and junior rugby by constructing the facility between number two and number three ovals.
It has now been completed and generations of players and sporting officials will benefit.
“Neil and Jennifer have been long time sponsors of the Dubbo Kangaroos and they have been fantastic to the club. They have basically built this out of their own pockets and it’s a fantastic boost to both the junior cricketers and junior rugby,” Dubbo Kangaroos spokesperson Steve Gower said.
“It’s going to be fantastic because it will save us having to wheel out and set up a barbecue like we used to do and it is protected from the elements. Everything is there ready to go.”
Gower said the facility is an example of the way community and sporting groups work together.
“It’s a two way street. The community comes together to give support and the clubs rely on that but they also give back to the community by giving children the opportunity to play sport,” he said.
