Melbourne Victory fan Peter Grujic had the experience of a lifetime this week, taking part in a training session with senior players as winner of the TAC's 'Slow Down and Stay In Control' competition.

Peter was the lucky entrant chosen for the prize, after entering the competition run through Melbourne Victory's Facebook and Twitter pages.

Peter and 16 of his mates enjoyed a private training session with Melbourne Victory stars Archie Thompson, Marcos Flores, Adama Traore, Andrew Nabbout and Francesco Stella at the Veneto Club in Bulleen this week.

The team was coached through various skills and drills, focusing on ball control plus movement on and off the ball before finishing with a cross bar challenge.

Once the training session was complete, Peter and his mates enjoyed a BBQ with the players where they got a chance to have a chat and get to know their heroes.

The Slow Down and Stay in Control campaign featured Melbourne Victory captain Adrian Leijer as well as Archie Thompson and Marcos Flores. It aimed to raise awareness and encourage football fans to slow down on the roads. With more than 2000 young people aged between 18 and 25 seriously injured on our roads each year, a campaign the club was happy to support.
