Playing his entire junior footy career with Numurkah, Liam made his senior debut in 1998 starting out in the wing or on half forward flank, was lured to Mordialloc in the Southern Football League in 2001 for a year and a half, returning to Numurkah Blues in 2002.
Currently playing at centre half forward or centre half back, Liam has proven to be a major key forward player for the Blues telling The Adviser he was happy to have been able to play 200 games with the one club.
“It has been a fantastic journey and being on the grounds with guys like Tyler Sprunt, Jason Collins, Link Wellington and Adam Laidlaw makes it all worth while.” Liam said.
As an outstanding junior, Liam was nominated for Rookie of the Year in 1999 (Deniliquin’s Andrew May taking out the award) and was a premiership player in Numurkah’s victory against Deniliquin in 2000, bagging a few leading goal-kicking awards for the club over the years.
