THE future of the Bendigo Gold Football Club looks brighter just one day into its survival campaign.
The Gold announced on Monday that the club needed 500 new members, a marked lift in sponsorship and access to a facility capable of running as a commercial venture to ensure its survival.
In developments yesterday:
n the City Of Greater Bendigo confirmed its support for Gold, with the Epsom-Huntly Recreation Reserve social rooms a possible facility for the club;
- a Bendigo Advertiser poll attracted 448 votes, 63.7 per cent in favour of Gold;
- Gold coach Aussie Jones reaffirmed his commitment to the club; and
- Gold skipper Steven Stroobants detailed how important the Gold pathway was for young footballers.
Bendigo Gold chairman Tim Dickson was elated with the response yesterday, but warned the club’s battle was a marathon, not a sprint.
