Lockie is a huge Collingwood fan! He was recently given the opportunity to visit the Collingwood Football Club in Melbourne’s CBD. Being able to visit your team’s HQ is every AFL lover’s dream!

To leave no doubt in anyone’s mind, Lockie dressed in his Collingwood jersey and scarf to support his favourite team.
Lockie enjoyed having a tour of the club’s facilities, meeting lots of players and the coach, Nathan Buckley. He was over the moon about being able to meet his favourite player Mason Cox!
As if the day couldn’t get any better, he was asked if he’d like to hold the 2010 Premiership cup. “The smile on Lockie’s face was the biggest I have ever seen” says Sean, one of Lockie’s Tipping key workers.
As a memento of his visit to his beloved Collingwood Football Club, the players signed Lockie’s jersey which he says is “going straight in the pool room!”.
We would like to thank Kayle Kirby, Tahlia Bownds and Annie lietzau from the Collingwood Football Club for organising a day that Lockie will never forget!
With the Pies currently sitting second on the AFL ladder, I bet you know who will be first in the queue for finals tickets!
