Dicko to Play his 100th Club Game
The thought of playing 100 Club Games has been in the back of Todd Dickinson’s mind for a very long time. In fact it has taken 10 long years of persistence to obtain this achievement.
Major injuries have hampered this talented player from reaching this milestone sooner – however on Sunday at Manuka Oval “Dicko” will play his 100th Club game for the Tigers in the NEAFL match v Eastlake at 2.00pm.
He then has another 13 NEAFL games to play before playing his 100th 1st Grade match for the Tigers.
The highlight(s) of his career being selection in the All Australian Under 15 Schoolboys team in 2004, selection to represent both NSW and the ACT in 2010 and 2011 and the achievement of being a member of the Tigers 2012 NEAFL Eastern Conference Premiership team.
Along with all members of his family, Todd is highly respected amongst all players and officials of the Tigers Club. Congratulations “Dicko” and may you reach the milestone of 100 1st Grade games with the Club.
