New AFL NSW/ACT CEO visits the Hunter

SmythGrahamWilliamsNew AFL NSWACT CEO, Sam Graham, has made his first trip to the Hunter/Central Coast, spending time with local clubs and staff. Mr Graham commenced his new role in April, after spending 10 years working in the Strategy Department in AFL House.

Mr Graham, pictured above with Craig Williams (Terrigal-Avoca Junior President) and Simon Smyth (AFL Manager – Hunter/Central Coast), visited facilities at Hylton Moore, Adelaide Street, Bateau Bay and No 1 Sportsground, as well as met the AFL Hunter/Central Coast Team, to discuss opportunities within the region.

“On my recent visit to the Hunter and Central Coast region, it was great to spend some time with the Hunter and Central Coast AFL team,” said Mr Graham. “It was also great to see a number of local facilities and to meet some senior community club representatives.”

Mr Graham was able to view the current surface upgrades at Hylton Moore, in which the AFL NSWACT have invested funds for re-levelling, turfing, drainage and irrigation of the ground. At Adelaide Street, Mr Graham had the pleasure of announcing an AFL NSWACT investment for drainage to the ground, to the Killarney Vale Executive. The next stop of the day was to No 1 Sportsground, where Mr Graham saw first hand the opportunities the AFL NSWACT have to upgrade this facility, to attract elite AFL content to the region, before concluding the tour with a meeting with Cardiff officials, to discuss home ground options from 2016 onwards.

Mr Graham has been impressed with the growth that has occurred across the Hunter/Central Coast, especially throughout the club football space.

“It is pleasing to see that AFL football is growing from strength to strength in the region. I look forward to working with everyone to support the next phase of growth.”
