They say it's the little things that make up the bigger picture.
So when Melbourne Victory go out of their way to ensure a new signing's dog doesn't get left behind? Well, maybe that's why they're the 'Big V' after all.
Victory announced the signing of two experienced campaigners, Amy Jackson and Rosie Sutton, as they seek to add more experience to the reigning Premiership side.
But it was the club's assistance in helping Sutton's pooch that left the biggest imprint on the hardy veteran, who coming back from a year out of the game now says she feels part of the 'Victory family.'
“I’m happy to be a part of the Victory family and am very much looking forward to the season,” said Sutton.
“I already feel very supported by the club and coaching staff – they even made it possible for me to bring my dog with me to Melbourne and we have settled in well.
“I’m excited to build on the success Victory achieved last year and hopefully I can help contribute in attack.”
Jackson was equally grateful for the opportunity a season at Victory provides, as the now high-expectations around the dressing room begin to lean heavily on hardened shoulders.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to be back at Melbourne Victory for another W-League season,” said Jackson.
“It’s set to be an enjoyable and competitive season and I’m looking forward to working hard and adapting to the team playing style under the guidance of an experienced and well-respected coach in Jeff Hopkins.”
