Lion's profile

March 01, 2018

Aiden Adams (left) and Alex Johnstone (right) recently joined Seymour from the VFL’s Werribee Football Club.

1. How does it feel joining Seymour football club and what has been your first impression?

Alex Johnston: ‘‘The first impression of the club was fantastic; great people, they made me feel really welcome and the direction of the footy club and team that Nick Jewell and Simon McLean spoke to me about made my decision to sign easy.’’

Aiden Adams: ‘‘It feels great to join the Lions and I’m excited to be throwing on the jumper this year!’’

2. What has been the highlight of your footy career so far?

AJ: ‘‘Moving to Sydney with the Giants to go to school and to play and train and being able to have access to coaches and facilities would have to be the highlight so far.’’

AA: ‘‘The highlight of my career so far is probably playing senior VFL football for the Werribee Football Club.’’

3. Who do you think is the most exciting AFL/AFLW player to watch?

AJ: ‘‘Josh Kelly (GWS) is definitely my favourite player to watch — he can turn the game around and has great skills all over the ground, even in front of goal. Another would be Kait Ashmore from the Brisbane Lions women’s team, with her great skills set.’’

AA: ‘‘Most exciting AFL player ... well there is a few but I like Dayne Zorko simply cause he can do anything.’’

4. Is there an AFL player you model your own game after?

AJ: ‘‘Heath Shaw, just with his knowledge of the game, ability to set up and turn defence into attack and his leadership behind the play.’’

AA: ‘‘I haven’t really modelled my game off anyone, but I just try to run all game and help out as much as I can.’’

5. What did you make of the AFLX competition?

AJ: ‘‘I think the AFLX would get a tick, a bit like the Big Bash for cricket — it’s exciting, different and will attract more people to the game.’’

AA: I attended the Melbourne game and found it pretty exciting at first. The night went a bit longer than I imagined and many people left before it was finished, but overall it was pretty good.’’
