Chalk­ing up suc­cess for Ea­gles fans

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - FRONT PAGE -

GOOD sup­port starts at home and for the West Coast Ea­gles, some of their clos­est neigh­bours helped get the hype started along the streets of Vic­to­ria Park last week.

Ahead of the Ea­gles’ huge pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal win over Mel­bourne on Satur­day, stu­dents from Lath­lain Pri­mary and St Clare’s School used royal blue and yel­low chalk to colour the pave­ment out­side cafe Laika.

Both schools are only about a tor­pedo punt from the Ea­gles’ train­ing fields and un­der-con­struc­tion home base in Lath­lain.

Other sup­port­ers soon joined West Coast 2006 premier­ship player Adam Sel­wood in chalk­ing mes­sages of sup­port, such as “Go Shuey”, “Flyin’ Ryan” and the club’s mantra “It’s time to fly”.

More chalk was spread later out­side lo­cal ho­tels.­mu­ni­ d487046 Pic­ture: Will Rus­sell
