Norwood v Adelaide @ Coopers Stadium
Norwood's 'Count Me In' Round
The SANFL Macca's League Round 13 fixture against Adelaide was also the Norwood Football Club's 'Count Me In' Round, which gives the club an opportunity to recognise a worthy charity or cause. This year we chose MND, a disease that has no boundaries and has touched the Norwood Family in the past couple of years. Firstly we lost one of our past players, Damien Lane last year and more recently Mitch Grigg’s father, and past player Chris Grigg has been diagnosed with MND. As a way for the club to make a contribution we will held our own 'Big Freeze'.
A dunking machine loaded with cold water and ice was set up to host a collection of sports stars and celebrities who kindly put their hands up to be dunked by our supporters. Those involved included Adelaide Crows' Taylor Walker and Eddie Betts, ex Crow Tyson Edwards, Channel 7’s Mark Soderstrom, Norwood Senior Coach Jarrod Cotton, plus club legends Michael Aish and Michael ‘Kingo’ Taylor, along with many others.
Norwood League Match Report
Norwood has recorded its eighth win in a row after defeating Adelaide by 51-points at the Parade on Saturday afternoon.
In the 2018 edition of the 'Count Me In' Round, the Redlegs put on a show in front of a strong crowd gathered to raise awareness for those suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. After losing Past Player Damien Lane from the disease last year and now seeing Mitch Grigg’s father Chris being diagnosed earlier this year, it was special day for the entire Norwood community.
