Footy fans line up to meet local hero
Thursday, 17th June, 2010
Adelaide Crows’ forward Taylor Walker was in the town square yesterday to meet fans and sign autographs.
Taylor is home to catch up with family and friends and support a few local businesses.
This week of football is a split round and Adelaide will be up against Melbourne on Sunday.
Taylor will also be catching up with his old football team North.
So is there any chance of him lining up with the Bulldogs on Saturday?
“No, I fly out on Friday, but I will get out to see them train,” he said.
Taylor acknowledged that while this season hasn’t been one of the Crows’ best, he hoped that they might turn it around soon.
“This hasn’t been the best season. Hopefully we can get a few more wins.”
Local businesses are also getting behind the AFL rising star.
“He’s giving something back to the local kids,” said local shop owner Lyn Carthew.
Taylor will be at the Toyota dealership today from 3pm to 5pm to meet fans and have a chat.
