Magpie gets a game in Australia

From the Avoca FNC web site:

The Avoca FNC will be represented by our second visitor from the USA Aussie Rules based team, the New York Magpies.

Tom Thompson will be visiting the club for training on Thursday night and will also be pulling on the boots for the Reserves team on Saturday against Dunolly.

Tom is currently visiting Australia to support the USA International Team in the Aussie Rules International Cup that is being played in Melbourne from August 3rd to the 13th.

Tom's Team mate Doug Lewis, who played for us in 2003 was also going to be having another run on Saturday , but had to pull out after being a late selection for the US team.

Hopefully we can provide Tom with the same experience that we afforded Doug by having a win against the improving Dunolly team on Saturday.
