Fans day was on Sunday at Kogarah. I popped down for a while and enjoyed it, the cove stall was doing good trade, strategically placed beside the main autograph table.
DrNick’s nephew who’s just a couple of months old was being passed along the table to have his onesie signed by everyone.
I liked that the signing table was a mix of the mens and womens teams and the poster was double sided with both teams on it, something that reflects the growing stature of the womens game.
I also saw a girl of about 7 or 8 ask Steve Corica for his autograph on the poster even though he wasn’t on it. Good to see him getting recognition. I had a chat with him and he seems happy with progress, and reckons there’s plenty more to come.
TMac told me that literally every foreign import has had a soft tissue injury early in their stint bar Bobo, so nobody’s particularly concerned about De Jong’s injury and he’s due back in 3 weeks, already running full speed.
Good stuff by the club, well organised and very well attended in comparison to recent years.
Did anyone else go?
