Promising young midfielder Adam Cerra was full of praise for the Purple Army, who were in full voice in Fremantle’s 34-point win against Geelong on Saturday.
Cerra said the 36,000-strong crowd helped give Freo the belief when going up against the ladder leaders.
“It was a great win over the weekend. The feeling of the stadium was unreal,” Cerra said.
“It was unreal the support they give us, I felt after the game, it sounded like there were 100,000 people there.
“It’s games like that you don’t forget and that support doesn’t go unnoticed.
“It definitely helped us get over the line.”
Cerra said that the team was focused on delivering for the fan base.
“We’re a young developing group, as you can see over the weekend compared to a year ago, there’s been massive changes in the team and the development is visible,” Cerra said.
“The players coming through, I reckon they are really good strong core of players for the future of the club, so stick around with us, we’ll just keep fighting.”
Cerra said the playing group was focused on what they could control as Freo looks to keep their finals hopes alive this Sunday against St Kilda at Marvel Stadium.
“We still think the season is alive and finals hopes are still there,” Cerra said.
“That focus is just bringing that consistent performance every week and if we win the rest of the games for the season, we’ll give ourselves our best shot at finals.
“(The Geelong win) was massive for the team’s confidence. (Winning against) the ladder leaders, it shows that we have belief in each other and we’ll back ourselves against anyone in the comp.”
