    Congratulations to Michael "Beard" Bull who played his 600th Senior game for Goroke/Border Districts at Frances this Saturday. An incredible effort from someone who not only plays but does a heap of work for the club off the field as well.What are the other big game tallies from the Wimmera region? I wonder who has the most games played?

Michael 'Beard' Bull bring up 600 games

MEMORABLE GAME: Wimmera man Michael ‘Beard’ Bull reached a major sporting milestone at the weekend, playing his 600th game of football.

The Border Districts veteran laced up his boots to face off against Mundulla for the fifth round of Kowree Naracoorte Tatiara Football League on Saturday.

The Eagles were unable to snatch the win, but the game was still monumental for Bull, marking the hundreds of hours he has spent playing competitive football in the region.

The border of South Australia and Victoria has long been Bull’s stomping ground since he first started playing for Goroke when he was 17 and later for Border Districts, when the clubs combined in 1999.

Club members congratulated Bull for his long-term dedication to the Eagles, which also included his efforts volunteering to help with the running of the club.
