Two of the NTFA's young guns will take to the field for milestone matches within their respective careers on Saturday.
Longford's Ben Murfett and Bridgenorth's Arnie Donnellan will celebrate their 100th senior and 150th club matches respectively as their side's both look to progress their campaigns towards September.
Murfett, a 23-year-old "hard at the ball" utility player continues a long Tigers family history as he joins his brothers Jake and William in Saturdays' outing.
Ben's father Greg, a member of the Longford 300 club and reserves premiership player and grandfather Barry, a reserves premiership player, will look on over the sidelines as club president David Blair paid tribute to the outstanding clubman.
"Ben is a fantastic and revered player around our club," he said.

"His hardness and commitment to training are great attributes for any player to aspire to. Ben is a great role model for the younger guys in all three teams at Longford."
Finishing third in Longford's best and fairest last season, Murfett said, "I just love Longford Football Club, it's been my second home for as long as I can remember.
"It's a fantastic club and the culture that Beau [Thorp], the coaches and committee have promoted makes it a really enjoyable footy and social environment".
As Murfett's Tigers sit pretty at the top of the ladder and face Rocherlea this week, Donnellan's Parrots have given 2019 a red hot crack themselves, sitting a game behind Longford in second.
The talented utility landed at Bridgenorth in 2011, making himself known quickly by taking out the leading goalkicking award that season.
With the 150 club milestone also coinciding with his 50th senior game for the Parrots, Donnellan has made Bridgenorth his home over the past nine seasons and coach Brady Demeijer couldn't speak more highly of the utility's play.
"Arnie is a fantastic clubmen who's been at the club for a while now but still manages to fly under the radar in our forward line," he said.
"He's a great avenue for goal in that he doesn't always get the best defender, but when he gets the ball, he makes the most of it.
