Forget about all the fuss surrounding Western Bulldogs captain Bob Murphy’s 300 game milestone weekend! The focus of the football world is entirely on JE Moore Park and in particular, club legend Brad Sanderson.

On Saturday, Sando plays his 409th game for The Roosters and in the process, breaks the Club’s games record.

Brad commenced his career at West in the U11’s in 1993, playing in the Grand Final – he kicked the only goal for his side. The team still only went down by a goal! In 1995 he won the U12’s Coach’s trophy, played in the premiership team and won the DVFL goalkicking award with his 46 goals. In 2000, his U17’s team were runners-up, losing the grand final by 4 points. Brad was 3rd BnF that year. He made his senior debut in 2001, playing 7 A Grade games, still playing enough games in the U19’s to be 2nd in the BnF. The following year he was equal 2nd in the BnF in the U19’s, playing in the Runners-Up team. In 2003 he played in another Runners-Up team, this time with the B Grade side. He repeated that effort in 2009 and also was 2nd in the BnF.

A Grade premiership glory arrived in 2010 when he gathered 22 possessions on the big day. He also won the Coach’s trophy for that year. In 2012, he won another premiership in B Grade. Then in 2014 he was awarded best player in the B Grade 1 point Grand Final victory. If that wasn’t enough he also won the club BnF as well as the NFL BnF.

In 25 seasons to date, Brad has played in 10 grand finals, for 4 flags.

Not only has Sando excelled on the field, he has been a contributor off it. We suspect that over the 25 years, he has rarely missed a club event – a true clubman!

Current games record holder Ken Louder, will be at the game on Saturday to make a special presentation to Sando and in the process, pass on the games record holder’s baton.

Anyone that has played alongside Sando, members and supporters are encouraged to get down to Moore Park and be a part of this historic event.

Congratulations, Sando. You are a True Legend!
