AFTER three years in exile from Davies Park, the Southern Suburbs Rugby League Football Club has taken its rightful place back at Magpie headquarters.
The Football Club is now back in control of the Leagues Club after being leased for three years by a catering company, whose lease was terminated by the Club at the end of last year. SSRLFC has been eager to put its Magpie stamp back on the Club and the football offices are now run out of the Davies Park premises.
The Club reopened at the end of January under the guise of the Souths Leagues Club and has begun to rebuild its membership base. The SSRLFC has entered in to a renewed and long term lease with the Brisbane City Council, with the support and hard work of local councillor Helen Abrahams.
The Souths Leagues Club has also embraced into the Davies Park fold the Green Flea Markets, Queensland Volley Ball, Balloons Over Brisbane, the Partisans Soccer Club and the Brisbane Road Runners, making the facility a multi-sport and recreational venue and starting Souths on the path to fulfilling its long term objectives.
The Club has also enjoyed a number of functions and events at the Leagues Club and the venue is available for hire for birthdays, events and other functions.
For more information or bookings, please phone the Club on 3844 7344.
