‘I had nothing to do when I got back. I was just at home and have hardly left my house,’ the AFL superstar told the Herald Sun of his decision to compile the book. 

‘The position I’m in, I take notes around the year. It’s basically my diary, so hopefully it’ll be a good read,’ he said.

‘There are so many special people that make the Melbourne footy club what it is. After 57 years, this one was for all of them,’ Gawn added. 

The Melbourne ruckman said he was most excited to be able to reconnect with fans through the book after so many months of lockdown.

The Demons convincingly beat the Western Bulldogs 21.14 (140) to 10.6 (66) in last month’s AFL Grand Final at Optus Stadium in Perth.

It was Melbourne’s first premiership win since 1964 and came after the club had struggled for years at the bottom of the ladder.
