Clubhouse vandals hit juniors
By RODNEY STEVENS
THIS week's attacks on the Pacific Hotel Yamba Buccaneers' clubhouse will have a significant impact on the club's juniors.
Buccaneers juniors secretary Andrew Bennett said the attacks on the club would impact on the financial assistance the club provided to its players at club and representative level.
"The club has tried to keep junior registration costs to a minimum and subsidises registration for players who cannot afford it," he said.
Mr Bennett said the cost to cover repairs to the damage inflicted by the break-ins will impact on transport the club supplies to its juniors for Friday night games and subsidies provided to representative players for travel involved in training and playing at this level.
"It's damn hard for clubs to earn a dollar ? we rely on volunteers."
"Unfortunately, if you cop too many kicks in the teeth some volunteers may say they have had enough and we don't want that to happen."
