Close on the heels of Max Demianyk, four more Adelaide Uni students initiated at the Whites in 2015 have notched up their 50th game.   Congrats to B’s stalwart and potty-mouth James Reilly, 2015 JWM winner Damo Holoubek, C’s lovechild Christian Roschi and Bres Academy graduate Dan Antony.

The growing list of recent half-centurions bodes well for the Whites. It’s great to have players sticking with the club and playing with each other season after season.

George Tan‘s mantle as the player to reach 50 matches over the longest period has only lasted a few weeks.  He passes it to inaugural E’s player-manager Ryan Harrowfield, who first played for the Whites in 2007.

Ryan last played for the Whites back in 2012, taking a sabbatical to raise four boys.  He’s over that now though, and is back in White!

Congrats Ryan!

Some long overdue half-centuries were racked up over the past few weeks.  Conan Shao finally hit 50 after 5 years at the club.  However George Tan surely takes the prize for the longest time to get to 50: his first game with the Whites was back in 2009.  George has played in all five Whites sides, and scored the first ever goal for the E’s in their opening match this year.

On the other end of the spectrum Max Demianyk will hit 50 if he plays against Pembroke this week, after joining the club in 2015.

Belated congratulations to Alan Evans, Ollie Smith and John Wilson who all hit their 100th game in the last few weeks.  Ollie marked his 100 with his first goal for the A’s in a 5-2 route of Unley. Alan’s was celebrated in the 6-1 derby win over Grads Reds.  John’s was unfortunately played against old friends in the south Parklands.

Meanwhile, Ian Hendrie marked his 50th match for the Whites with a hat trick over Unley in round 2.

And in case I forget, the other Ian will get to his 50 this week against Mercedes.

Congratulations to Adam Pedron for winning the Div 1B Best & Fairest for the third year in a row.  It’s a great achievement to win one, but three is just amazing.  He either needs to stop being so friendly with the referees, or give the A’s a crack!

Well done also to Daniel Ong who finished joint 4th in Div 1B on 14 pts.  While in Div 4, congrats to Rob Alberton and Saber Dini who finished joint 2nd (11pts) and joint 4th (10pts) respectively.

Well done to Saber Dini and Stuart Smith who recently racked up half tonnes against Woodside and Mercedes respectively. That makes nine players hitting 50s this year.

Props also to Dan Aikin who will notch his 300th match (since 2003) next week .  If we could add all of his appearances B.W. (Before Website) he’s probably closer to 400.  To go alongside his longevity, Dan has also won a couple of league championships (2000-01), a cup (2012) and the A’s Best Player (2004) . Massive respect Face.
