2019 - Ned Tyrrell - 50 Games

Congratulations: Ned Tyrrell – 50 Games

July 1, 2019

Is it true that the first thing Ned said, on reaching his 50th game milestone was:

“I want to thank Mum for boiling my uniform every week and keeping it in pristine condition?…may be not…or was it “ do you remember that goal Mum???”?

Ned started his Fitzroy journey in U/9’s in 2016 and is well known for his lightning pace and ferocious tackling.

Ned won the Joe Johnson medal in 2016, and last year was 2nd in the club Best & Fairest.

Call it “white line fever” (or black in the photo) – when Ned crosses the line, he rises like a phoenix and takes on all comers.

In 2019, Ned is hoping he can represent Fitzroy in finals for the first time.

Good Luck & Well Done Ned!!
