This weekend against Salisbury North, Nick Stuart clocks up the double ton, only the 22nd player in Jets history to reach the 200 game milestone. You can check the stats page to see others. https://unleyfootballclubinc.teamapp.com/custom_pages/1642-senior-player-stats

Coming from juniors, Nick commenced senior football at the Jets in 2008. A thumping left foot kick and nearing 30 years of age, he still commands a spot in our outstanding 2019 squad as a versatile utility player.

Nick has been used in virtually every position on the ground and has booted 132 goals, 36th on all-time list. Highlights include the 2012 A grade flag, plus being a part of the leadership group that took the Jets from Div 4 to Div1.

Not limited to an on-field role, he has also been a committee member for past 3 years helping out as Social Secretary, and has put in many hours of coaching into our Junior Football program. He spends most of his weekend at the club being joint coach of the mighty Jets U15 team.

Nick embodies the fantastic attributes of loyalty, leadership, and off field participation. He is supported by his outstanding Jets family with his dad, recent past President Rod, mum Anne, a hardworking member of our Wing Women Team, and grandmother Shirley an ardent supporter, all contributing to the ongoing success of our club.

Your club salutes you Stewie, and thanks you and your family for your effort and hard work in helping us achieve our on field, and off field successes. Good luck in your milestone game this weekend.
