ON THE back of a four game unbeaten winning streak to start the season Richmond Football Club players have taken a little time out to visit Shepparton this week, as part of the AFL Goulburn Murray player appearance program.

Dion Prestia, Shaun Grigg, Ben Lennon, Jayden Short, Kane Lambert, Oleg Markov, Kamdyn McIntosh and local boy, Nathan Drummond roared into town on Tuesday to visit schools, run a multicultural coaching session and conduct a super clinic for local primary school children.

Over 450 local grade 5 and 6 students were involved in the super clinic held at Kialla Park Recreation Reserve, with the Richmond players teaching the art of kicking, handballing, marking and other fun activities before a question and answer session finished off the program.

In the afternoon, players visited secondary schools to talk about leadership, training programs and the life of a being a professional sports person, before they headed to Victory Park on St Georges Road where they took students from Sirius College and Shepparton English Language Centre through in a skill development session.
