A magnificent contributor to the Yarrawonga football team, Brad O’Connor will play his 100th game this Saturday when the Pigeons host Corowa-Rutherglen.
Recruited to Yarrawonga from Robinvale Football Club in 2006, the 29-year-old won the O and M goalkicking in his first season.
AFL star Brendan Fevola’s arrival in 2012 meant Brad moved out to centre-half-forward where he was outstanding in Yarrawonga’s 2012 and 2013 premiership victories, still booting 40 goals or more both seasons.
To come to a town, settle and play 100 games with premierships, open a business and be warmly welcomed and appreciated, speaks volumes. Congratulations and well done, Brad.
