Ahead of their return-to-Metricon clash against Geelong, the Gold Coast Suns paid a visit to our PBCJAFC Lions on Monday night.
Suns players Jack Martin #4, Jack Bowes #29, Callum Ah Chee #13 and former Palmy Lion Jacob Dawson #45 spent a couple of hours at Salk Oval, taking time to talk with each of our teams at training, answer questions, get in amongst some of the training drills, and - of course- signing a few autographs.
Our players took the chance to ask their favourite Suns questions ranging from tips on the skills junior players need to practice, how far and fast the players could run, and why they took up footy in the first place.
Thanks to the Gold Coast Suns for taking the time to come and visit our PBCJAFC Lions!

Our inaugural PBCJAFC Lions Pride Values Initiative and Awards night was held Saturday, 5 May, recognising the wonderful contributions of our players to the club and community.
Lions Pride partner Bendigo Bank Tugun presented 2017 winners each with their $100 Bendigo Bank account prize and stunning trophies kindly donated by local craftsmen from the Men's Shed woodworkers.
Co-chair of the Tugun Community Bank Branch, Lisa Fitz Gerald, and Customer Relationship Manager, Lorne King, presented the awards, which recognise the values of our club that our players proudly display.
Lions Pride is an initiative to define, promote and instill the best elements of our club culture in our young athletes. This includes respect, teamwork, leadership, community engagement, and inclusion.
Congratulations to all award winners.
