Ararat primary school students rubbed shoulders with AFL stars Ben Cunnington and Mason Wood on Wednesday last week when six members of the North Melbourne Football Club visited the city.
Joel Crocker, Kyron Hayden, Tom Mckenzie and Lachlan Hose joined star players Cunnington and Wood for the visit.
AFL Wimmera-mallee football development manager Jason Muldoon said the players ran clinics and answered questions at Ararat West, Ararat North, Ararat and St Mary’s primary schools.
“The players were well received,” he said.
“The kids loved it and the visits are a real highlight for them.
“The players enjoy it too, especially the ones who grew up in the country.” very
