Northern Blues captain Tom Wilson is in line to play his 100th game this weekend.
Wilson is due to reach the milestone in his eighth year as a Blue this Saturday when the Blues head to Box Hill City Oval — the same venue and opponent as his 50th game.
In reaching the feat, he will be the first Northern Blue to reach a century of games since Brent Bransgrove two years ago.
In his time at the club, Wilson has been crowned club champion twice, with Laurie Hill Trophy victories in 2014 and 2016.
He took over from Bransgrove as captain of the club at the start of the 2016 season — a year where he made the VFL Team of the Year.
He also won the club’s Jamie Shaw Trophy in 2013 as leading goal-kicker, was made Life Member in 2015 and represented Victoria in the 2017 state game.
Wilson has been a model of consistency and spirit for the Blues, missing only four games in as many seasons.
Ahead of his 26th birthday on Wednesday, Wilson has already marked himself as a champion of the club, with his impending 100th game to tick off yet another milestone in the Northern jumper.
