It’s amazing to see so much orange in the crowd these days

More than 200 young GIANTS fans and their parents were reacquainted with their favourites players at the club’s Kids in the Park Clinic at Tom Wills Oval today.

It was the first supporter-based event for 2016 and fans couldn’t wait to see the new and improved playing list following the Christmas break.

There was a signing session, kick-to-kick on the oval, group photo and even an open player boxing session for the parents to watch.

GIANTS star forward Jeremy Cameron said it was pleasing to see attendance numbers increase at every clinic.

“It’s amazing to see so much orange in the crowd these days,” Cameron said.

“I recognise some of the faces but each time I’m blown away by how many new kids show up for a kick.

“There’s only a month or so until the first NAB Challenge match so a few of the parents had questions about how we’re traveling and who is set for a big year.

“The interest is certainly there and it’s really exciting to have that solid support base behind us.”

It was the first time fans had the opportunity to meet new recruits Steve Johnson and Dawson Simpson who joined the club during the trade period in October.

DrafteesJacob Hopper, Matt Kennedy, Harrison Himmelberg and Matt Flynn were also introduced to fans for the first time. 

Despite all the attention from players, it was a surprise visit from club mascot G-MAN which was the highlight of the afternoon.
