OCEAN Ridge club champion Tony O’Connell will play his 350th game of WAAFL footy this weekend.
But his impressive games tally and personal accolades pale in comparison to his love for his family and the sense of community at his footy club.
O’Connell has won multiple club best and fairest awards, is the current reserves captain-coach, was voted club champion in 2008, won a premiership in 2015 and for seasons would kick bags of goals.
But his favourite memories are playing a game with his brothers Liam and Luke and having his son Jaxon down at the club.
