Hot Breakfast footy reporter Tom Browne has revealed that former Bomber Andrew Welsh was involved in behind the scenes work to get wantaway GWS midfielder Dylan Shiel to nominate Essendon.
Welsh entered the property development space after finishing footy, with a parcel of land he purchased in Melton blossoming into the suburb Thornhill Park.
Shiel is reportedly interested in entering the property sphere at the end of his footy career.
“Dylan wants to be a property developer, so Andrew came in and explained how he developed his business career during his time at Essendon,” Browne said.
“I think Dylan was pretty taken by that presentation and very impressed by Welshy.”
