Yahoo marks massive milestone

Posted: 3pm 07 Jul 2021

Garry “Yahoo” Spencer has become only the second Redcliffe Tigers AFL Club player to notch 300 games.

Spencer played his 300th game in the Councillors Cup, as the Tigers matched up against the Moreton Bay Lions, equalling the record set by John “Peg” Pyatt in 2007.

Esteemed player

Life member Dean Milstead says Spencer started at the Tigers in 2002, won a best and fairest in 2004 and has played in three premierships for the club.

“Yahoo is a rare gem, simply one of the nicest blokes you would ever meet, with a fierce competitive streak - Garry has been an essential piece of the Redcliffe Tigers organisation,” Milstead says.

The club celebrated the milestone with a guard of honour and a banner for players to run through, led by Spencer.

The Lions defeated the Tigers 6.6.42 to 8.1.49.
