AFTER several ups and downs, AFL superstar Brendan Fevola has cleared the final hurdle and is free to play for New Norfolk in its home game against Huonville this weekend. The match has received national media coverage over several months, including a mention on Channel Nine/WIN Television’s Footy Show, when a poster by Katie Hepper Design was displayed by Sam Newman (left).
The Fev fiesta starts on Friday afternoon with a junior footy clinic hosted by the New Norfolk Junior Football Club. At this event Fevola will be assisted by senior New Norfolk players, Glenorchy development coach Ben Beams and Glenorchy senior players. The clinic will be at Boyer Oval this Friday from 2-4pm. Entry is free and there is no need to register – just turn up on the day. For more information phone 0439 522 796. The Fev poster seen on TV and around New Norfolk will be available at the clinic for $5 and will be a great item to have signed as a keepsake.
Adults interested in spending time with Fevola at the Hotel Soho “Night with Fev” this Friday should contact Chris Lovell on 0149 509 142 as there will not be any door sales. Tickets are $80 for a single or $600 for a table of 10.
The big event will be when Fevola pulls on a red, white and black Eagles guernsey on Saturday afternoon at Boyer Oval. This week’s issue of the Derwent Valley Gazette has a cut-out Brendan Fevola mask with prizes on offer for being spotted by Mercury photographers at the game.
