Johnsies carve it up in Melbourne – on and off the field.
Posted by Vietnam Swans on June 20, 2012
Arguably, one of the biggest football names in Melbourne, the Johnsies, have continued to carve it up on and off the field.
On Saturday, Lachie Johns, nephew of the Swannies’ Johnsy, aka Fabbo, made his debut in the seniors for the Vermont Eagles in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. The caption below the photo above reads,
“Our 2012 ex Junior debutants continue to serve us well. This week it was Lachlan Johns. He had a terrible time over the summer with injury and after just two games in the Reserves was picked to play in the seniors on Saturday. He was given the honour of leading the victorious team off the ground.”
Well done, Lach!
Meanwhile, his sister, Kristen Johns, has appeared on a Fox Footy promo for the upcoming match between Collingwood and West Coast (see photo above on right).
Of the three Collingwood supporters in frame, it is believed that Kristen is the only one to be sporting her own set of teeth.
It remains frustratingly disappointing that if only Kristen had been a Swannie rather than a Maggie, she would be an angel.
In other news at the Vermont footy club, the same newsletter reports that it will hold a Sports Night on 11 July 2012. The big guns to come out that night include Daniel Harford, Kevin Bartlett, Rodney Hogg and Nick Maxwell.
It’s amazing the talent you can muster up in a city half the size of Saigon.
But the Vermont Eagles have got nuthin’ compared with the Swannies. The Swannies are about to welcome back to the country a man who is, arguably, Asian football’s most adorable player, Gus.
He’s back on 1 July for an unlimited time.
