TALLYGAROOPNA Football Netball Club (TFNC) will help to celebrate a rather impressive milestone by one of its players this coming weekend, Helen Down, who is set to take to the court for her 400th club game.

Helen began her time with the club in 1997, moving over to play with Mooroopna in 2002 where she took to the court for two winning grand finals (B grade 2005, A Grade 2008). She was awarded the Best and Fairest Award in B Grade 1998, 2014, 2015, coached B Grade in 2004 and has been in many club roles including fundraising coordinator from 2009 to 2014 and assistant secretary in 2015.

TFNC vice president netball, Madison Brett said, “Helen is a great leader in her team and the club, holding the third highest netball games played for TFNC having only spent one season away, to return home in ’03.

“H, (as she is affectionately known), has also done a lot off the court for the club holding various committee positions.

“Congratulations for this weekend H, and thank you for your service to the club on and off the court.”
