Lane Cove MP Anthony Roberts and Ryde MP Victor Dominello said the two hockey fields are proposed for Christie Park in Macquarie Park with the Panthers’ Keith Thompson Field in Macquarie Park to make way for the grounds of a new school at the neighbouring former Peter Board High School site. The Panthers’ Patron and The Weekly Times Managing Editor John F Booth AM had lobbied the government to get the extra field our growing number of local hockey juniors need and is celebrating the win alongside Club President Glen Castensen who described the deal as a landmark in the club’s 80 year history. “This is wonderful news for the Ryde Hockey Club and a landmark achievement for the Ryde community,” Mr Castensen said. “It is very satisfying to see our player development programs and our reputation on the world stage being matched by the proposed relocation to a much-needed dual field, first-class hockey centre and home ground.” Lic No: 205629C NEW ARRIVALS BATHROOM CENTRE Your Renovation Starts Here!
