One of our most modest Members, Jason Ryan, has been named as the Seat Eagles 'Member of the Month' for April.
Jason has been a Member for almost 10 years in different Membership categories.
Living in Perth, Jason (this year a Gold Premium Member) makes the extraordinary effort to make it to most of our home games.
He was also in attendance to our inaugural Member Council meeting. Born and raised on Norfolk Island, Jason says it was a lack of support for Manly that led to him cheering on the mighty maroon and white.
"When I was five or six, all of the rugby league games we watched on video, everyone used to barrack against Manly on the island,'' he recalls.
"I thought this can't be right, and somebody has to support them, so I started cheering for Manly.
Jason decided to become a Member as he believes it shows support for not only the Club, but also the players.
His favourite Sea Eagles moment has been meeting and watching a game with his all-time favourite player Cliff Lyons. "(Cliff Lyons) is my all-time favourite player; however, Jake T is fast catching him."
For his efforts, Jason receives a $100 bank account from Freshwater Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank as his prize. He also goes into the draw to be the 2018 Sea Eagles Member of the Year.
He will also be part of our Member Experiences in Round 20 (Members Appreciation Round).
We thank Jason for his passionate support and for embodying the spirit of our Club.
