$3000 windfall for Junior Spuds

28th Feb 2023

New playing strips are top of the list for the Guyra “Spuds” Junior Rugby League Club, after its success in the #GreaterNewEngland Community Funding Program. 
The Guyra “Spuds” Junior Rugby League Club is $3,000 in front after winning the public vote in the January round, with  Animal Welfare League – Tamworth and Somerton Public School Canteen each receiving $1,000 as runners-up. 
Guyra “Spuds” Junior Rugby League Club Communications Officer, Cate Hayton, said the club punches above its weight. 
“Guyra Spuds is an amazing little club from a town of a population of only 2,000,” Cate said. 
“We field teams in all age groups from Under 6’s to 16’s in Juniors and three teams in League Tag. In addition, we were named 2022 New England Club of the year and won premierships in under 10s and under 16s! 
“Many thanks must go to Greater Bank for the opportunity to take part in this terrific program and for its continuing support for the New England region.” 
Greater New England Regional Sales Manager, Will Boyd, said clubs like the Spuds are a crucial part of what makes country towns great. 
“All sporting clubs rely on volunteers for their success and, indeed, their very existence,” Will said. 
“Nowhere is that more so than in small country communities like Guyra where people often wear numerous hats, so we are very pleased to support the Spuds and wish the club all the best for continuing success in season 2023.”
