Mr MARK COURE (Oatley)

—Speaker, there have recently been a number of organisations within my community who have received funding under the 2024 Local Sport Grant Program. I would like to recognise one such organisation today. I would like to pass on a special congratulations to the Georges River District Cricket Club, who were recently awarded just over $6000 to buy some new equipment. Specifically, the funding will be used to purchase a brand-new bowling machine, allowing the club to enhance their training sessions and provide better opportunities for player development. The club also will be purchasing a 'Frogbox' system, which allows them to stream the matches directly to YouTube, whilst also capturing highlights and allowing for replays. I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to everyone involved with the Georges River District Cricket Club and would especially like to recognise President Kevin Croom and those on the committee, who campaigned for this project. I have no doubt that this new equipment will contribute to the continued success of the club and help nurture the next generations of talented cricketers.
