BRENDAN Fevola has been drawing bumper crowds to grounds across the Ovens and Murray Football League all season.
Yesterday, the crowds followed him again to book signings in Albury and Wangaratta.
Fans started queuing at the Dymocks Albury store in Dean Street 45 minutes before his scheduled arrival at 3.30pm.
The former Carlton star was still signing copies of his book, Fev: In My Own Words, more than an hour later.
An estimated crowd of 150 people attended the book signings in both Albury and Wangaratta after the publicity magnet spent the previous day at Bendigo and Yarrawonga.
Dymocks Albury staff said the book signing session required extra staff being called-up for the day and surpassed a similar promotion done by Ray Martin late last year.
“It has created a real buzz,” one staff member said.
Wodonga’s Amanda Robb and her four-year-old son Bailey arrived in Albury at 2.50pm determined to meet one of their idols of the football field.
“We are all Carlton supporters and members,” Ms Robb said.
“He is just a superstar.
“Everybody has done wrong things in their life, but he is on the right track now.”
