CONGRATULATIONS to long-serving New Norfolk footballer Roger Belcher for breaking the record for the most senior games played for the Eagles.

Having recently equalled the previous record held by the retired great Chris Sproule, Belcher yesterday went one better and set the new record at 265 senior games and the number will only increase over the remainder of his playing days.

Yesterday's issue of the Mercury newspaper featured a story on Belcher's achievement and a lovely photo of the man and his daughters. This can be read online here.

Belcher's record capped a great day for the Eagles, which included a great win over arch-rivals Claremont and a 150 club game milestone for Nic Clayton.
