Last week, Greg Paramor, a member of the Sydney Swans Board was in HCMC on business.

He arrived in HCMC unaware of the Vietnam Swans existence but left with one of our Vietnam Swans hats and a shirt.

While we weren’t able to secure a face to face meeting, Vietnam Swans National President, Phil Johns, did get to speak to Greg on the phone. Greg said that he expects to have irregular travel to Vietnam and next time will contact us in advance so that we can organise a Club function.

Greg is the second Sydney Swans Board member to have visited Vietnam. In 2004 (or was it 2005?), Chairman of the Sydney Swans, Richard Colless, visted Hanoi. Richard was the star of a very well attended club function – at which he handed over a kit of 20 Sydney Swans jumpers to the then Hanoi Swans.

Greg, the former Managing Director of the Mirvac Group, joined the Sydney Swans Board in March 2008 .
