    Comparatively those fields are pristine to what Kellyville was/still currently is.
    Plus assuming the match field is on the road side then they’ll have to put seating or some sort of elevated viewing for the TCT boys and Delboy, because its very very flat there. Not saying it couldn’t/shouldn’t, I just never envisaged it as such.
    Might mean I’ll see few more games so good for me. Bad for you guys but cause I’ll be throwing my vast insider knowledge more than a monkey flings it’s shit

    The plan is for a 1000 seat grandstand to be built

    I assumed it was going to end up a reserve-grade-quality venue. But yeah maybe it'll just end up like one of those giant parks where eight soccer games can happen at the same time.

    I thought I read they were going to play flegg and HM games there which I would have thought would attract more than 1000 people

    8? Small sided it could fit about 30. I might go have another sneaky on way home this afternoon. They have rearranged it though so it’s not entirely situated on a main-ish road so it’s got that over Ringrose

    If any of you westies have ever been to the upgraded Redfern Oval, you'd see that it presents the same sort of setup. Mainly training facilities, can can be used for small crowd games.

    Kellyville is to hard to get too unless live close by. Wenty is far easier to access just off the m4.

    It's 100 metres after turning left off Windsor Road, hardly difficult to get to. The Hills district is still part of Sydney folks :grinning:

    Windsor road is a nightmare. Wenty was quite central for people based inner west, sth west, Penrith west, Kellyville, Parra etc....

    People from those areas are not going too Kellyville

    You reckon people from Kellyville won’t travel to Kellyville but will travel to Wenty?

    The people that went to Ringrose, Guildford and Cabramatta will be the same people that will go to Kellyville. Those that didn't go to to Ringrose etc won't go to Kellyville.

    Yep. It takes some serious dedication for punters to attend NSW Cup games that aren’t played before first grade. It’s quite a massive drop in standard so you really have to love your footy. Those same punters will make the trek out to Kellyville. Similarly, those close by who haven’t attended Wenty games in the past might attend a game here and there for the novelty but are more likely to find something else to do to fill their weekend.
