Last night at training I noticed a small event that reaffirmed my belief in our players and how they are carrying on the long time traditions of the club.

There was a young supporter (in Westies jumper) with his Dad and the young man went down to the boundary at the fence gap northern end of the players shed and started to chat to two of our players who were rehab training kicking the ball (think young man knew one of them?).

Next thing they invited him to join them on the field and to have a kick with them -- this extended to include him in their handball rehab. There were Coaches in the vicinity and they were quite happy for this to occur.

Wonderful gesture by the players concerned and I was so proud of them.

A small thing perhaps but proof the Westies spirit and heart still beats strongly in the players rooms.

It's Jack Agostino and a new (?) kid Austin Something. I didn't recognise him but will learn his name when the season starts.

Excellent post, oldfella.

Your immediate family and mine have about 250 years service to the club, much more if we count other family. Your father and my grandfather are Hall of Fame members.

We have seen what you posted many times over the years watching training and it is testament to the players and club spirit that is always there at Westies.

I hope that lad grows up to become a life-long West person.

He will. He's been a fan since we (he) moved back to Adelaide. We always tap my Grandparents' brick on the way in and talk about players and how much fun it is.

Stuff like this though really cements it as a welcoming atmosphere.
