Clubhouse is not abandoned
The club house at Umina Oval is not abandoned and it is not a football club house.
The club house was built by members of Umina Cricket Club, Umina Soccer Club and Umina Rugby League Club.
Some of those member mortgaged their houses to raise funds to build it.
Inside the building is a list of members of the three clubs who helped build it.
The building is constantly used by the local cricket and football clubs.
I doubt that the youths causing trouble in the area would be interested in attending at a youth centre, even if the building could be converted.
As a member of the team that prepares the turf wicket for cricket, we have found that leaving the lights of deters vandalism on the wicket.
The club house and wicket have been vandalised many times and I agree that more patrolling by police and council officers is needed.
