Digital scoreboard installed at Woy Woy oval
A multi-purpose digital scoreboard has been installed at Woy Woy Oval in time for sporting fixtures to resume for the season.
Main beneficiaries, the Woy Woy Rugby League and Woy Woy Rugby Union clubs, have both welcomed the installation.
"It's very user friendly and adaptable with a lot of options available to configure the layout as you deem fit," said Roosters rugby league club president Mr Tim McParlane.
"The scoreboard will be a great tool for both clubs and the wider community.
"Not only is it a scoreboard, but it also has functions for displaying still photography, videos and other applications including TV and live streaming.
"It will be sensational, especially for night games."
Woy Woy Lions rugby club's project co-ordinator Mr John Kenney said the installation of the new scoreboard was a fantastic achievement for the two clubs.
"We have always persevered with ensuring the oval has a state-of-the-art scoreboard, and now it has happened," he said.
"The two clubs have worked diligently together since 2015 to gain funding, and to identify a suitable scoreboard commensurate with a showpiece oval that is now one of the finest venues in NSW.
"The scoreboard is of great benefit to the local community and now completes the redevelopment of Woy Woy Oval," he said.
The project was jointly funded by Federal, State and local governments.
"When we all work together, outstanding results are achieved," Mr Kenney said.
The scoreboard was supplied and installed by Southern Cross Scoreboards.
Mayor Cr Lisa Matthews said the new scoreboard matched the modern standards of Woy Woy's redeveloped oval and would make a big difference to sporting clubs, players and spectators alike.
