The four major benefactors of the Manly Sea Eagles stood firmly behind the push to keep the famous club at Brookvale Oval into the future with a combined $40,000 kick start to a ground fund. The joint owners,the Delmege and Penn families,the Manly Leagues Club and the Manly Warringah Rugby League football club all pledged $10,000 today in day one of a call to arms for supporters and sponsors. The Sea Eagles will donate profits from next Monday night's Brookvale Oval clash against the New Zealand Warriors to the fund. The first 2,000 adults who pre-purchase a ticket to the match via Ticketek will be given a free "I've helped save Brookvale Oval" t-shirt. Manly CEO Grant Mayer said there was a real groundswell in the district to keep Manly at Brookvale Oval. "All sections of the community have called us to let us know how important it is to the district to keep the tradition of Manly at Brookvale going. "That response has led us to start this fund which can be used for any number of things in the new ground we hope to have.Curreently our wheel chair access is almost non estistent - we would like to do something in that area for a start," Mr Mayer said. Club saviour and co owner Max Delmege said it was important for the community to get behind the push for an improved Brookvale Oval. "We nearly lost our team - we don't want to lose our historical home ground but it needs help,"Â Mr Delmege said. Chairman Scott Penn said a new look Brookvale Oval would benefit all the sporting communities in the area. "We just want to use the new look ground 12 times a year - that leaves a lot of dates free for a multitude of other spsorts and the northern beaches needs a sporting showcase.....not an eyesore we have at present," Mr Penn said. Manly Leagues Club general manager Peter Spray said the licensed club would always support the Sea Eagles whenever possible. "We have stood alongside them for decades and will continue to be a loyal support," he said. The members of the football club had no hesitation in supporting the fund with chairman Bob Reilly urging the community to support by attending Monday's match or donating to the fund via the Sea Eagles offices.
