Big crowd counts

Avon Valley Gazette - - SPORT -

SWANS chief ex­ec­u­tive Jeff Den­nis wants to see more than 3000 peo­ple flock through the gates for Count Me In round.

It will be the first time WAFL league, re­serves, colts and in­te­grated foot­ball teams will be fac­ing off on the same day at Steel Blue Oval. Streaming ra­dio sta­tion Footy Ra­dio will be broad­cast­ing.

Den­nis said High Wy­combe and Cool­binia play­ers would be train­ing at the club on July 12.

“What we are try­ing to achieve is the op­por­tu­nity to cel­e­brate peo­ple with dis­abil­ity and build a con­nec­tion with the club and peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties and their fam­i­lies and car­ers.”

The WAFL took on Count Me In based on the club’s ex­am­ple.
