300 games for Walker

KORUMBURRA BENA Giants, James Walker celebrated his milestone 300th game on Saturday in the Reserves.
James played Junior football at Bena and was playing for the Seniors when Bena merged with Korumburra. The Korumburra-Bena Football Netball Club president Ross Beasley said, “He is a great club person, it is good to have him around.” As well as playing for the Reserves Walker is the Under 10’s coach.
As far as the nickname ‘Crazy’ goes, fellow Reserves team mate Paul Whelan said he has had it for well on 20 years, “He goes in hard for the ball.” Photo courtesy Gerard Bruning@fourcornersframing.biz
