2017 Magarey Medallist, Mitch Grigg says consistency is key if Norwood are any chance of bringing the Premiership home to the Parade in 2018.
Grigg returned to the Parade at the beginning of the 2017 Season and didn’t look out of place at all notching up his first ever SANFL Magarey Medal whilst finishing third in Norwood’s Best and Fairest.
Speaking to Grigg he remains optimistic about the 2018 Season mentioning how excited he is to perform for Norwood in their 140th Year.
“It’s an exciting place to be around at the moment,”Grigg said.
“This year is our 140th Year, so everyone is really excited and can’t wait to get out there in Round 1 against Sturt.
“We want to be a consistent and successful side in 2018 and the boys are showing that so far throughout the pre-season.
“I feel football clubs are a lot more enjoyable to be around when you’re winning, so if we can be consistent and play to Cotts’ (Jarrod Cotton) structures and look after one another we should have a really good year.”
In terms of Grigg’s own development he is striving to work harder than he has ever before, aiming to play his role for the team in order to go deeper into September in 2018.
After setting the bar high in 2017, Grigg concedes he won’t become complacent mentioning he still has more to give this season.
“I just think you have to keep working to get better as a player,” said Grigg.
“Obviously I’m extremely proud of myself for winning the Magarey but at the end of the day I’d much rather win a Premiership.
“All I’m concentrating on this year is trying to make my teammates and myself better and hopefully if we do that we can go a couple of weeks further into September.”
