Saigon President, Derrin Limbrick addresses the troops:
Gents, what a big couple of weeks we have coming up. A great time to be involved in footy and even greater if your team is still running around in the AFL finals series.
First cab of the rank is training this weekend. Like I always say, please do what you can to get to training. The more guys we get down the better for everyone. Plus with last week and next week off due to the Grand Final, this will be the last chance to get in a run before the upcoming match against the visiting HMAS Darwin. More about that later. Training is at the usual time of 2 30 at the RMIT. See you there.
Just when you thought that it was never going to happen, the training singlets have arrived. So if you get down at training tomorrow you will be the proud owner of a Vietnam Swans 2009 Training Singlet*. We are all going to be looking the goods from now on boys and I read somewhere that can make us all better footy players……
*note to Fabbo, I think that there is a photo opportunity here mate.
Guys, for those that don’t know or who don’t listen. We are soon to be saying our farewells to one of the Vietnam Swans favorite sons, Drew Franklin (aka Hollywood #2). Drew has been a dedicated coach for the Swans for the last 2 years and we are all certainly all very grateful for your efforts. Your skills as a coach and a player will be sorely missed. As will your boots. Drew has arrange for some farewell drinks tonight at Cantina Central after 7 pm. See you all there.
