When it came to Silly Socks, Ryan Nyhuis took the cake.
The defender wore a pair of hot pink socks to Wednesday’s recovery training session at Cottesloe Oval, as the playing group got involved with Ronald McDonald Silly Socks 4 Sick Kids.
Silly Socks 4 Sick Kids runs from Friday 2 August to Sunday 4 August, raising funds to provide a 'home away from home' for regional WA families with a seriously ill child receiving vital medical treatment in Perth.
To promote the event, RMH ambassador Connor Blakely decided to get the group to bring their socks out early.
“Basically any sort of organisation can get involved, it’s just a gold coin donation to wear silly socks to work or to your sporting organisation,” Blakely said.
“It’s all to raise awareness and funds for kids, so they can continue to get the support and stay at a nice facility like the Ronald McDonald House while they’re getting treatment.”
Blakely said that Nyhuis won ‘worst on ground’ but credited his teammate for taking part.
“Ryan had a pair of pink ones that looked putrid,” Blakely said.
“But you know what, at least he was out there wearing them! A few of the boys didn’t do it, so at least he was getting involved, which was great.”
