HELP has arrived to lift the standard of soccer at all levels in western Sydney, especially in Blacktown, thanks to a new $1.2 million all-weather football centre in Seven Hills.
Owner Vince Camera has transformed the former rundown field and grandstand at the back of the former Blacktown Demons Sports Club into Lily's Football Centre at Quinn Avenue.
He has hired James Lambert, who has an AFC A coaching licence as the technical manager and coach for the centre's five-a-side league teams.
The facility has a high-grade synthetic field that can be used in all weather conditions.
It will host Blacktown City and Hills Brumbies (11-a-side) on weekends.
The field can be split into eight pitches for five-a-side matches on other days.
Eight cameras have been installed to record games for later analysis and to stream the action live into the new canteen and lounge area.
Mr Camera is committed to making the centre the best football development arena in the area.
He said employing a technical coach was key to the centre's philosophy.
