What do you do for work?
I'm an electrician these days. I've been doing it about six years now I think.
Where did you start playing footy?
I've really only ever played for two clubs.
I played under-12s for Hillwood which was real early days, then I played under-13s for George Town, then I didn't probably play much more junior footy because I got involved in running.
I went back to George Town in the under-19s because I was playing cricket with a couple of the under-19 coaches at the time - Dean Gibbons and Rick Geeves. They saw me kicking the footy at cricket and said 'we're coaching next year, come for a kick' and I've played ever since.
Career highlight to date?
The obvious ones are the grand finals. Rep footy is another one, I really love my rep footy - it's something I definitely remember and look back on.
I'm glad that I've done it, to be able to play with the best of the best, and other people you don't really get to have a relationships with and see that they too are great blokes.
But probably more than anything the friendships and the life you have from footy.
I probably would have found something else to do but I couldn't see my life being a lot better than what footy's given me, it's been fantastic
Favourite grand final?
Definitely the last one- not just because I coached it but to beat Rocherlea as underdogs, to win that by three points, that was as good as football could get at the time.
It was one we should never have won and we did, and it's something that I definitely won't forget. The first one was pretty special as well.
Best player you've played with?
Chris Jones is the easy one - I think everyone says Chris Jones, he was out of this world, next level as a footballer.
I'd also like to say someone like a Jay Walsh - he was so underrated and he was certainly a bloke that I wouldn't have been as good a footballer without him around me.
Best player you've played against?
There's so many but probably Justin Rigby from Rocherlea - the way he went about his footy was fantastic.
He was hard at it, fast, he had all the attributes and liked a beer after it, but you could mention 20 people.
Funniest thing you've seen on the field?
There's been a few good 'uns. A young guy called Zane Allen got hypothermia one day - I don't think that was funny, but I've never really seen that before.
We had another young bloke Luke Saunders - it's only funny because of the way it looks on the grand final video - but he sort of came into the game with the flu, went for one contest and that was the end of his day, we didn't see him until the next pre-season.
Things like that stick in your mind.
Any chance of a George Town comeback season?
Unfortunately premier league as it is now has probably gone a bit beyond me, but I'd never rule out going to run around in the twos for George Town again.
I love George Town footy club and what they've done for for me is fantastic.
I'm a life member so I certainly do see myself there one day, but right now Evandale Football Club has been fantastic to me.
I was probably cooked with my footy after 300 games for George Town and didn't think I really wanted to play any more.
I went out to Evandale and re-found the love of the game in some regard, they've been great to me as well.
What's the secret to your longevity?
I still enjoy playing footy so why not? And I've been super lucky with injuries.
I've suffered a few breaks here and there but I've been unbelievably lucky.
Also great support from my mum and dad and my wife Brodie - they've always just allowed me to play footy and never questioned me training two nights a week and what it's sacrificing in my life, so I've been really lucky there as well.
The only thing I don't like about football is pre-game - just the waiting. I just want to get it over and done with and wait for that first bounce.
It's fantastic that everyone's congratulated me and made a big deal of it all, but we're the lucky ones the players, we just get to play footy every week.
It's your volunteers, presidents, secretaries and your waterboys and watergirls, all those people that put in countless hours - they get nothing back for that, it's all about sustaining a footy club.
They're the ones that should be lauded with the appreciation of it all, all I have to do is run out with my mates every week on a Tuesday, Thursday and a weekend.
Also the NTFA, all my games have been played within the NTFA competition. I've never had a situation in my footy career where I've had to worry about what competition I'm going to play in next week.
They've been a solid, secure and really good competition for a long period of time - sure they've made some mistakes but who hasn't? That's just footy and that's just life in general, I think they've been fantastic.
The game can't exist without volunteers and I think they're the real ones you pat on the back at times like this.
