Uncle Ho asked to stand aside for Potsie!

Posted by Vietnam Swans on June 26, 2008

Hardcore footy news returns to the Swans Blog:

Last Friday, the Vietnam Swans who live in Hanoi met to elect some key players to the committee.

The rumour is that on Friday evening, Potsie made a call down south to report that there was a tie between Willy and Charlie for the position of “President of Hanoi”. It was suggested that the winner should be decided by one of Micky Francis’ famous toad races. 

Three days later the official news was circulated: Potsie. President. Based upon the Friday call, it was an amazing turnaround to the outside observer!! Potsie’s a long time supporter of footy in Hanoi and in his new lofty position, is likely to wear his dentures for even longer periods each day. No doubt, Uncle Ho Chi Minh would approve.

Inspired and enthusiastic Charlie will be the coach of the north.

Jo Mitchell will be the secretary. This is the first time the Swans have had a woman take on one of the committee positions which is proof that we have progressed to “progressive”. 

Good luck to Potsie, Charlie and Jo. The rest of us look forward to supporting you.

Saigon had a meeting scheduled for Tuesday of this week to elect its committee. However, the actual election of committee members has been rescheduled.
