NETBALL is one of those games to provides some of the glue that brings small country towns together.
This past weekend saw Tallygaroopna Football Netball Club stalwart, Rebecca Humphrey, will play in her 350th club match at home against Avenel in A Grade.
Bec has had quite a playing career at TFNC spanning an almost 20 years, 306 games in A Grade – 306, 24 games in B Grade and 20 games in C Grade, and in the Kyabram District Football Netball League especially as she is one of only 2 players in the KDFNL to have played 300+ A Grade Games. The only other player having reached this milestone being another TFNC player, Kelli Halden.
She has also played in two premiership teams, A Grade in 2009 and B Grade in 2003 and been awarded Best and Fairest in 2009 and 2010.
However, her playing career is not the only way she has supported Tallygaroopna, with her many years of service off the court to the club. Bec serves on the committee, not only as treasurer where she has secured the financial stability and longevity of our club, but also her many other roles off the court from assistant secretary, organising netball dresses to organising the vote cards for the club and many fundraising opportunities over the years.
In reaching this personal milestone, the club want to thank Bec for her on and off the court service to the club and look forward to many more games!
