Eagles fans in the South West will have a reason to celebrate regardless of Saturday’s result, with head coach Adam Simpson scheduled to visit the South West Italian Club on October 20.

Money raised from the event will fund the Bunbury Men of Song to travel to the UK in 2020.

Bunbury Men of Song president Keith Howe said it was a rare opportunity for fans and one not to be missed.

“Adam Simpson has done a great job coaching the Eagles into a grand final regardless of the result,” he said.

“I am personally interested in the personal management of guys like Andrew Gaff and Nic Naitanui who have had a pretty traumatic year.”

Mr Howe won’t be the only choir member anticipating the evening.

“Our musical director is the number one fan of the Eagles, so we always know what the rehearsals are going to be like if the eagles have lost, it’s all very hard work, and if the eagles have won it is much more fun,” he laughed.

As well as a 45-minute speech from Simpson and a question and answer session, the event will include an auction of Eagles merchandise.

An Indian feast will be provided by Spice Journey.
