Collingwood’s Dane Swan, along with fellow Magpie Luke Ball, is set to fly into for an event open to the public next month.
Dane Swan and Luke Ball, key members of Collingwood’s 2010 AFL Premiership winning side, will appear at a sportsman night hosted by the Devonport Football Club on Saturday May 19 at the Oval Function Centre.
”We are rapt to have a reigning Brownlow Medalist come to town, which doesn’t happen too often and it is a great opportunity to listen to these players considering all the turmoil that Collingwood has experienced over the past few weeks,” Devonport Football Club general manager Mark Fagan said.
Last year fellow Magpies’ Alan Didak, Dale Thomas and Heath Shaw appeared at the club for a similar event, but that wasn’t run by the Devonport Football Club.
”This time we have made sure we are running the event and we will be structuring the night so the players will have much more interaction with the audience,” Mr Fagan said.
”I’m sure, as it usually is with Collingwood, it will be a very interesting night.”
The night will be hosted by racing personality and Devonport Football Club president Shane Yates and commences at 9pm with a VIP event running for one hour prior, to the main show.
