HIGH Wycombe Junior Football Club had two very special visitors at training last week when Dockers players Lee Spurr and Anthony Morabito put the young players through their paces.

About 250 members and players from a variety of teams and Auskick participants attended and spent time learning about Morabito and Spurr’s football history and participated in drills run by the stars to help them with their skills.

With Morabito taking the kids through skills to help with being an all-round utility player and Spurr showing them the strengths in a good defensive game, the players were never more motivated at training.

High Wycombe Junior Football Club President Floyd Sullivan said that star players from AFL teams knew the importance of spending time with local kids.

“Just kicking a footy with guys like that means so much to the kids and keeps them interested and inspired to play the game. We really appreciate the guys coming down and working with all our players and coaches and hope to welcome them back next season for a visit,” he said.

After training, Morabito and Spurr signed posters and merchandise for those who attended, which was a fantastic way to end an inspiring session with the big players.
