LONG-SERVING Eagles player Rohan Heron today completed his 200th senior game for the New Norfolk District Football Club.

Recently awarded life membership of the NNDFC, Heron celebrated today’s milestone with an 11-point win over Cygnet at Boyer Oval.

A club spokesman said Heron was a consistent player for the Eagles who was highly respected by the players, supporters and coaching staff. He also has six premiership medals to his name.

Former Eagles coach Matthew Smith said on Facebook that it had been an absolute pleasure to have coached him. “Always putting his teammates/team before himself – a true champion not only of the NNDFC but football in general,” Smith said.

Dean King said Heron was one of – if not the best – backmen to play for the Eagles. “You are a legend on the ground and off,” King said on Facebook.

Congratulations and well done Rohan.
