I've been asked by many about my appearance in the slowdown and given my football background I thought this could be a good place to set the record straight.
I was asked to play in the game by Chris McDermott from the Little Hero's Foundation.
Chris was club captain when I played at Glenelg in the late 80's/early 90's.
He apologised when I arrived as the selected full back had been a late withdrawal and I was given the job standing Tony Modra. Our conversation finished with Chris reminding me that "the crowd had come to see Mods and not me."
I could tell I'd been invited to be a step ladder.
I was given jumper number 20 with C.Wingard on the back and it only took a few minutes for the kids to work out I wasn't "Chad Wingard" and I have to be honest and say I felt their disappointment!!
As always it was a great day and more funds were raised to help sick children in SA by the Little Hero's Foundation.
