Footy training in Hanoi tomorrow
Posted by Vietnam Swans on June 19, 2009
Coach in the North, Mr Willy, fires up the troops re training tomorrow beneath the Long Bien train bridge.
As mentioned previously, with UNIS closing down due to school hols, there is a new training venue. Mighty Trav has gone to a bit of trouble to book the ground and ensure there are plenty of refreshments for us after.
Essentially, it is a beauty of a spot not at all far from the Old Quarter. I’m sure plenty of you know it already, but just in case you don’t the Swannies’ new ground in Hanoi is a soccer pitch next to Hanoi’s famous Long Bien railway bridge on the Red River.
This has to be one of the most surreal AFL training spots in the world. Training will start at approx 12.30, and mainly comprise of hav’n a few dobs and then a few coldies after. By all means bring any of your children etc who might want an Auskick.
If ya have not done a train’n session down here before, I would really recommend that you bring a camera as well, as it makes for some memorable snaps to put in your AFL pool room one day. By all means with the weather bein’ damn hot at the moment, you can just come along for the beer.
Go you Swannies!!
