Mounties locks in first venue on the Central Coast (Liverpool City Champion)

Joining Forces: Mounties Group CEO Dale Hunt and Club Wyong RSL CEO Angela Saunders

Mounties has secured its first venue on the Central Coast.

On Sunday, Club Wyong RSL members voted unanimously in favour of an amalgamation with the Mounties Group at a special general meeting.

Club Wyong RSL chief executive Angela Sanders said the proposal would provide the club with a strong foundation for stability and growth.

“For years we have been a much-loved, humble little club here on the Central Coast, but we have been facing incredibly challenging times, even before the global pandemic hit,” she said.

“I am so pleased that our members are on board with the idea of joining Australia’s leading club group and that they are just as excited as our management team is for the future.

“This vote ensures that we are one step closer to not only achieving a sustainable future for the club but also opening up a world of possibilities for future generations of the ever-growing Wyong community.”

Mounties Group chief executive Dale Hunt held a series of information sessions over the past few weeks in the lead up to the vote. Mounties Group financial members will have their say in November while Liquor and Gaming NSW will also need to approve the amalgamation before it is made official.

“We are excited at the prospect of welcoming Club Wyong RSL into the Mounties family and extending our offering outside of Sydney. We are in a unique position to offer clubs that may be struggling a helping hand in difficult and uncertain times and we have a proven track record of successful amalgamations, which we hope this will become,” Mr Hunt said .

“We are one of Australia’s most successful Club Groups because we care about the communities in which we operate, and we re-invest all profits back into our society. This is what has held us in such good stead for so many years and this is what we feel privileged to bring to the Central Coast.”
