Thank you to everyone who has purchased or renewed their membership for 2017.
Remember if you purchase your membership by COB 28 February, you will go in the running for a new Fitzroy jumper, which will be drawn by Fitzroy Senior Coach Nick Mitchell at the season launch on 1 April.
In the meantime, the membership month of February was off to a big start as people were keen to get their hands on the Fitzroy training singlets awarded to the first 10 purchasers of online memberships on 1 February.
It was just mid morning on the first day when we had our first 10 names!
Congratulations to Danny White, Andrew White, Sam Warren, John Neale, Richard Poole, Chris Bell, Matt Owens, William Westerman, Bill Shannon and Peter Wells, who are now the proud owners of Fitzroy training singlets. Thank you for your enthusiasm!
So far our Fitzroy memberships have been ordered from all over Australia and even overseas. From Brunswick St North Fitzroy, right across Victoria to Moama NSW, Bunbury WA, Kambah in the ACT, Cygnet in Tassie, Mount Gambier in SA, quite a few from Brisbane, Otago NZ and even Staffordshire in the U.K! Thanks to all of you and keep them coming.
For many long-time Fitzroy fans, membership renewal is a time of reminiscing and this week Bill Atherton at the Fitzroy shop received a letter and membership renewal from 90 year old Graham Keil from Bairnsdale, who was reminiscing about his first trip to Brunswick Street Oval to see the Roy boys in 1933 when he was just six years old! He was lucky enough to see Haydn Bunton and ‘Chicken’ Smallhorn in action – not one, but two Brownlow Medallists running around that day!
Graham shared his good wishes for the season and continued support for what the club does for young people.
You still have a week to go into the draw for a new Fitzroy jumper by purchasing a membership so don’t miss that 28 February deadline. Here is a link to the page with all our membership options: http://www.fitzroyfc.com.au/membership
