Since the early 1900’s St. Mary’s have called Anthony Costa oval at West Kardinia Park our home. Over the past 20 years the club has had massive growth.
If you drive past you will see that the main redevelopment of the Don Mathieson Pavilion has now been completed and the facility caters for all of our members and community groups who utilise the facility.
The completion of the rooms will bring the total development for the club over the past 4 years to over $3m. A summary of development is as follows:
|Electronic scoreboard (completed)||$25,000|
|Lights for night football (completed)||$375,000|
|Safety nets behind goals (completed)||$38,000|
|Female / accessible rooms (completed)||$113,000|
|New multipurpose facility||$2,500,000|

St Mary’s has done an enormous amount of work planning and working to fund all of the development work. The club has had an infrastructure account in place for over 10 years where significant funds have been saved in planning for the development. The club has also been fortunate to receive a $1.1m grant from the Victorian Government, $350,000 from COGG along with fantastic support from Elaine and Tony Costa to raise funds for the project.
In 2022 we completed an extension to the north end of the change rooms which has supplied us with much needed extra storage space.
