The Launceston Football Club celebrates with Beau Green as he breaks the Launceston Football Club games record in the clash against Devonport this weekend, passing Paul Ellis’ mark of 253 games.
In the club’s 139 year history, only these 2 players have reached the 250 game mark.
Beau debuted as a 17 year old in 1999, and has remained loyal to the Launceston Football Club, entering his 16th season with the Club in 2014. Beau is a four time Premiership player (2006, 07, 08, 11), multiple Best and Fairest winner (2002, 07) and Club Captain (2007, 08, 09), and has been a model of consistency over his 16 seasons, although he missed the entire 2009 season with a serious knee injury.
Beau is considered as one of the greatest clubman in the history of the Launceston Football Club, being a leader both on and off the field.
Paul Ellis debuted in 1973 and is a two time Best & Fairest winner (1974 and 1976) and two-time Premiership winner (1976 and 1985). His career spanned over 18 years playing in 14 seasons (1973-82; 84,85,88,91).
The Launceston Football Club congratulates Beau on this milestone, and the Launceston Football Club would like to see as many of Beau’s former team-mates at Sunday’s game to honour him and celebrate this significant achievement.
