Club stalwart Aaron Kinghorn looks set to play his 300th game for Aquinas this season all things being equal.
Currently having pulled on the red, black and green guernsey 290 times the big milestone may well come in round 10 against Powerhouse.
Kinga would become just the 3rd player in club history to play 300 games at Bloods Stadium after Shane Livingstone and Marcello Tarulli.
It would be an incredible achievement to add to an already storied career, which already comprises 4x Reserves Best & Fairest as well as a Reserves premiership in 2017 and more than 50 senior games.
Asked about the pending milestone he said “from day 1 I have tried to represent the footy club the best I can when putting on the jumper.”
People like Terry McEvoy, Michael Lynch, Chris Jeffrey, Robert Chapman, the McDonald family, the O’Loughlin family and Lou Belli to name a few not only showed me the Aquinas way but taught me life lessons that I am very grateful for.
I hope to pass the lessons I was taught as a 19 year old on to the young men and women that are at the club today.”
Kinga isn’t the only one with a big milestone on the cards with Sammy O’Loughlin currently on 186 games and set to join the 200 club in season 2022.
We also have Sam Porter on 146 and Joe Morrison-Story on 135 games likely to notch up 150 this year.
Matt Westwood would need to play every home and away game to reach 100 games this season, currently sitting on 82 matches played.
The 50 games club is also likely to have additional members by season’s end with the likes of Elliott Muckleston, Luke Lewis, Lachie Robb, Rory O’Brien and Jared Sund a chance of bringing up the half century in Aquinas colours.
