IN THE PICTURE: Geelong footballers visit Cobram-Barooga and surrounding townsFebruary 13, 2013 4:57am
The Geelong Cats football team caused a sensation among footy fans during their visit to Cobram and district last week.
One of the first things on the players’ itinerary was a visit to Cobram Hospital’s Irvin House aged care facility.
The staff were lining up for autographs and to meet their favourite stars and the residents were amused by the antics of the players and staff.
The Courier also caught up with Joel Selwood, Chris Scott and Jackson Thurlow who were busy signing autographs for fans at the Cobram Post Office.
They were also there to promote the ‘Boots for All’ initiative, where locals are asked to take their unwanted footy boots and equipment to the post office.
This gear will then be donated to football clubs that are socially or geographically disadvantaged.
The footballers also visited Picola and District League and Murray league clubs for training sessions.
