Brasington joins exclusive club

Only ten men have played 150 games for the Singleton Roosters.

Samuel Brasington joined the exclusive club earlier this month.

Ironically, he reached the milestone against Warners Bay; the same club he made his senior debut against at the tender age of 16.

“I remember my first game was a home game against Warners Bay and the big names at the club were Brendan Dullaghan and Mark Oldham,” Brasington reflected.

“Breno was the gun midfielder and Mark kicked bags up forward every week.

“To reach 150 games to me just shows how long I’ve been around the club and I’ve never missed a season of footy.”

Brasington would be much closer to 200 senior games if you counted his seasons with Cardiff in 2008 and the Victorian based Stratford Swans (East Gippsland Football League) in 2017.

He also described himself as a ‘top up player’ for the Sydney Swans reserves in 2007-08; featuring in a 2007 ACTFL senior premiership line-up which featured future AFL stars Craig Bird, Kieren Jack, Luke Breust and Johnathon Simpkin.

He then returned to Singleton at the end of the decade and booted 107 goals in Singleton’s memorable 2009 season.

“Highlights are always winning grand finals with your mates,” he concluded.

“I was lucky enough to play in all four of Singleton’s flags since 2009.”

Brasington’s milestone will be celebrated this Saturday when the Singleton Roosters play host to ladder leader Terrigal-Avoca (match to be live streamed on BarTV).
