Ginnivan joins the Magpies

Castlemaine football talent Jack Ginnivan has been selected by the Collingwood Football Club in the AFL’s Rookie Draft at pick # 13.
It was the ultimate birthday present for the talented young Strathfieldsaye and Bendigo Pioneers forward/midfielder who turned 18 just the day before.
Jack said that when he received the news he was beyond elated.
“It was a really emotional moment. It’s something I have worked towards for many years and I am still pinching myself that this is happening!” the young gun said.
It has been a whirlwind few days for the footballer who was whisked to Melbourne on Sunday to enjoy a tour of the Holden Centre with player welfare manager Chris Dixon and was presented with his Magpie guernsey and locker.
Ginnivan has been given the No. 33 guernsey last worn by Magpie great David Cloke. See the Mail for the full story.
