Wake notches up 200 games

Two Wells footballer, Travis Wake, has never won a premiership in his many years at the club but he’s hoping 2014 could be the year to change that.

Travis played his 200th game for Two Wells on Saturday July 26 in the B Grade against Hummocks at Lochiel.

Two Wells won convincingly by more than 100 points, he kicked three goals and was carried, albeit reluctantly, off the field on the shoulders of his teammates.

Travis started playing footy at the club as an 11-year-old junior in the U13s.

Initially a wingman, as he grew older he developed into a strong forward pocket player and has played about 25 games of A grade footy during his time at the club.

A knee injury suffered while playing cricket about seven years ago saw Travis sidelined for a season (ironically the one season Two Wells B grade won a premiership) but he was soon back on the field again.

The club presented Travis with an etched glass mug to commemorate his 200 games, and he is believed to be the first player in recent years to reach this milestone, although a few others are not that far off.

With the B grade currently sitting second on the ladder by one point to rivals Virginia (as of Aug 1), Travis has high hopes he’ll be celebrating again come seasons’ end.
