New Look Belmore Impresses Former Players
Over the past two months, Belmore has had a makeover with a new look training base that will take the club into the 2018 season with a fresh start.
Inside the gym there are historic photos, the hall of fame, premiership winning coaches, a graffiti mural, player milestones have been recognised and every player who has played first grade for Canterbury is also listed on the walls.
At the northern end of the ground where the train tracks are there is a five metre high almost 30 metre long mesh wall of each year the club has won the grand final and the dressing rooms have had a facelift with the current playing group taking their spot alongside some of the club’s greatest players.
The club officially unveiled the changes last week with a number of former players impressed with what has happened over the off-season.
“To see the history around the club brings back so many memories. The club is in great shape and everyone involved who came up with the concept, has done a phenomenal job,” said Andrew Ryan.
“It’s good to see the history of the club up on the walls and it’s good to see the culture come back,” added Reni Maitua.
“It’s a big part of the club and it’s a good change. It’s good for all the current guys to understand who has come before them and who has played a big role in the club,” Luke Patten said.
