Daniel Kerr, the Eagles and the Swans

Posted by hanoiswans on September 14, 2008

Daniel Kerr, his uncles John & Mark and Vietnam Swans National President, Phil Johns in Saigon

ran a story on West Coast Eagles superstar, Daniel Kerr.

“WEST Coast expects to find out this week if it can secure its hottest property, Daniel Kerr, with a planned two-day seminar with Kerr and its out-of-contract stars.

“The Eagles’ midfielder, who shapes as the biggest name on the table during next month’s trade week, has asked for a five-year deal from next year, but the Eagles have stated they will offer a three-year deal on top of the one year remaining on his contract”, reported The Age.

Last month, Daniel’s uncles, Mark and John Regan, were travelling through Vietnam. While they were in Saigon, they caught up with the Vietnam Swans National President, Phil Johns at the Cafe Latin - with a bag of Daniel Kerr goodies.

In the bag was a West Coast jumper and a mega stubby holder/carrier. Both had been autographed by Daniel Kerr. There was also a West Coast scarf from the “Captain’s Club”. Mark and John donated all these items to the Vietnam Swans to raffle off at the Vietnam Swans 2008 AFL Grand Final Parties.

What makes this story particularly special is that Mark was the one to initiate contact with the Vietnam Swans finding us via this website.

The Vietnam Swans are extremely appreciative for the very generous and unexpected support from Mark, John and Daniel. It is amazing.

Anyway, if you would like to be the proud owner of these special pieces of West Coast memorabilia, you better get yourself a ticket to the Vietnam Swans Grand Final Parties. Tickets went on sale this weekend.

Footnote: Apparently, the Swans in Sydney also have an interest in Kerr. Football Manager, Andrew Ireland is currently refusing to comment on reports that Sydney is “extremely interested” in Kerr.
