Titanic experience for young Danes

Last Sunday, 17 lucky young Under 14 Pittsworth Danes were treated to a day at the Titans with their coach Arthur Vernon and his merry team.

The day included a bus trip to Robina Town Complex where a “hearty” breakfast was consumed before a quick trip across to the stadium for a tour of the facilities.

The boys seemed to really enjoy the tour of the gym, swimming pool and ice baths and even got to witness some of their idols in action, with Luke Bailey pedaling away on an exercise bike in the Hyperbaric Chamber and David Mead, Matt Srama and others in the gym.

After the tour the boys watched the under 20’s match and got to meet some of the players after their convincing win over the Raiders.

Unfortunately the first grade team didn’t have the same result but the young Danes didn’t seem to mind with so much going on around the grounds including the many “selfies” they took with celebrities, from a walking Boost Juice cup, a Giraffe, the Titan mascot and many cheerleaders which were the biggest hit!

After the main game the youngsters got to meet and get signatures from David Mead, Matt Srama, Mark Minichiello, and Luke Bailey as well as retired legends Trevor Gillmeister and Ashley Harrison.

They also were kind enough to pose for a few photos with the Danes boys too. Then it was time to get back on the bus, stop for one more feast and head home. Congratulations goes out to all of the players for the way they conducted themselves.

They did their club proud and looked a treat all dressed in their red Danes hoodies.

The club would like to thank Kieran from the Titans staff, along with David Mead, Matt Srama, Mark Minichiello, Luke Bailey, Trevor Gillmeister and Ashley Harrison for their time and patience with the boys, having photos taken and signing many autographs. Also locals Steve Allen for driving the bus, Wayne Wilson, Chook Simmonds, Rose Fraser, Nola Allen and Gaylee Vernon for their assistance and most of all coach Arthur Vernon for the experience. The boys really appreciate it.
