Nerimbera Football Club determined to fight back

WHERE Nerimbera Football Club's clubhouse used to stand, a large cement slab remains.

It's all that's left after Cyclone Marcia came through and ripped the roof off the building. Despite the setback, the club is determined to get back to its former glory.

On Saturday they held a working bee to clean up the grounds and the dressing shed, and Nerimbera president Ricky England said it was very successful. "We haven't been able to train or anything for the last two weeks," he said. "At least we can start training there again, even though we're still not able to host games."

Since the water for sprinklers and power for lights both came from the clubhouse they won't be able to host games until they have one rebuilt. No one was allowed to go back on to the grounds until trees had been cleared and the remains of the club house taken away.

The football season starts towards the end of the month.
