LG set to join the 150 club

Louise “LG” Grant will joine her great mates Lou Wotton and Brooke Fox in the 150 club this weekend when she lines up against St Kilda at East Burwood Reserve.  In her typical understated style LG isn’t wanting to make a big deal of things although she did say “I’d definitely like to win!”  After starting her football in a forward pocket in 2000 she soon developed into a classy on-baller with skill, knowledge and fierce determination.  She is a Life Member of the Devils and has previously been named Players Player and Best Club Person.  Away from the Devils she has pulled on the Big V at two national carnivals and has played for Vitoria Metro on two occassions.  As a Devil many of her games have been spent at the feet of ruck Lou Wotton who said “She is one of the smartest footballers I know.  She is always thinking two or three steps ahead and her instructional talk is second to none.”  Many of those who have played alongside LG say they are a better player when she is out there, which is one of the greatest complements a footballer can receive.

Cashews notches up a ton

Katie “Cashews” Eshuys brought up her 100th game for the Devils with a resounding win against St Kilda last Sunday.  A member of the Devils Team of the Decade in 2008 she is a consistent performer who uses her smarts to find plenty of the ball while patrolling the wing.  Head to the Milestone gallery to check out all the pictures.

Congratulations Robbie!

Robbie Foster joined the 100 club yesterday when she ran out with the Seniors in their round 6 clash against Darebin.  Robbie started her footballing days with Heidelberg in 2004 before her desire to play at the top level prompted her move to the Devils in 2008. A serious neck injury saw her sidelined for much of the 2009/2010 seasons but she has been back to her best in recent times owning the wing with her pace and run. Congratulations Robbie.

Congratulations on 100 games Macca!

Congratulations to Kathy “Macca” McBride who played her 100th game when she ran out as captain of the Reserves against Berwick on Sunday.  Although the Devils were unable to secure a win, Macca was named Best on Ground.  In a signature performance she willed herself to the contest time and time again and put her “falcon” smother technique to good use.  Our only premiership captain, having lead the Reserves to glory in 2008, her Best and Fairest win last year showed she is still in her prime.
