250 GAMES FOR MICHEAL ‘PUD’ DARCY
A magnificent achievement for ‘Pud’ Darcy, who will play his 250th game for the Cygnet Football Club this Saturday.
After having his 2015 season end prematurely due to injury, it was perhaps thought that his footy career might be over. However, Micheal got his body right and following a big pre-season is one of the key reasons why The Port has started the 2016 season so well. He is an integral part of our forward line structure and most weeks takes on a couple of good backmen. ‘Pud’ is one of the strongest and best one-grab pack marks and shot for goal many at the Club and opponents have seen.
‘Pud's’ football ability cannot be disputed and his record with the Port Cygnet Football Club speaks for itself. He played his first season with the Cygnet Colts in 1995 where his football abilities became quite obvious. He moved into the Senior team the following year, where he topped the Club’s goal kicking for the first time, with 52 goals.
‘Pud’ has now kicked over 1,000 goals for the Club, an average of more than 4 goals per game over a long career, which has included five 100 goal plus seasons (119 in 1998, 122 in 2003, 117 in 2004, 108 in 2005 and 103 in 2007). He has won the Club’s goal kicking award on an amazing eleven occasions, out of the 13 seasons he has played with the Club.
In recognition of this marvellous achievement, the Club’s Senior Goal Kicking Award was last year renamed in ‘Pud’s’ honour.
‘Pud’ was a member of the 2003 and 2004 Premiership teams, is a former Club Best & Fairest winner and has also had a year in the Senior Coaching role.
Apart from stints at Tongala in Victoria, Kingston, Channel and Glenorchy, the ''big fella'' has always had the black, white & teal running deep through his veins!
It is great that ‘Pud’ is still pulling the boots on and making a significant contribution with the development of our younger players and still more than capable of making those back-men very wary!!
Congratulations ‘Pud’ on a great career and best wishes from all at the Club on your 250th.
We have a bus booked to pick up attendees from Kingston.
The bus will depart outside the Commonwealth Bank on Channel Highway, Kingston at 10.15am with further stops at the Fork in the Road bus shelter, Margate Tavern, Snug Tavern and Oyster Cove turnoff.
The cost will be $20.00 for adults and $15.00 for pensioners including ground admission ($8.00 and $5.00).
Travellers can book their seat on the bus when they book their dinner ticket. Online payments can also include the relevant bus fare.
This promises to be a highly entertaining function, as Campbell shares his many tales of his AFL days on and off the field and he is sure to have the audience in raptures.
Purchase and pay for your ticket early - don't miss out!!!
