One of Norwood FC’s high profiled off season recruits, Cameron Shenton, has revealed that coming back home to Norwood FC is something he has always wanted to do, and is ready to push for a first ever flag with the Redlegs.
Shenton, who has recently returned from Melbourne after spending five years with St.Kilda, stated how happy he was returning to the Parade in 2017, and believes he is hungrier than ever for success with the team he has always held close to his heart.
“It’s something that I always wanted to do,” said Shenton.
“I loved playing for Norwood growing up and I always kept in close contact with the players and staff from when I was living in Melbourne playing for St. Kilda.
I was a person that always kept an eye on the score when I was in Melbourne, so in my heart I always wanted to come back to Norwood and I am glad it’s finally happened.”
Shenton, who is a valuable asset to any side with his ability to play in any position has mentioned that head-coach, Jarred Cotton, has played him in defence so far, this preseason. However, Shenton hasn’t ruled out a cameo appearance in the forward line if called upon.
“So far Cotts (Cotton) has used me down in defence which is probably my most comfortable position,” said Shenton.
“In 2015 I played a bit of footy in the forward line, but I am ready to play anywhere I’m called upon.
“So, unless we need another forward, I might pinch in up in the forward line as well.”
Shenton who missed out on the last three premierships and lost a Grand final himself in 2010, has stated how determined he is to finally with a flag with his beloved Redlegs.
“On a personal note, I just want to play the best footy that I can in 2017,” said Shenton.
“Obviously, I missed out on the Grand Finals and I lost one in 2010, so that’s my main goal coming back to Norwood and winning a flag.
“At the moment as a team we are buying into what Cotts (Cotton) has been saying, and we are making sure we are doing everything to the best of our ability to improve, and to hopefully one day win that flag.”
