Congratulations to Sharky Kelsh on receiving Wirrulla FC Life Membership. A long time player and official, full backs will still be having nightmares of him in full flight. Glen kicked 122 goals to lead the Mid West FL goalkicking in 1988, still a record to this day, and it was achieved with a 14 round season. For the mathamaticians, that is an impressive average! Tall and a great mark, either leading or in a contest, he was a proliffic scorer his whole career.
A gentleman, Glen is well known and respected across the Eyre Peninsula. This award is a well deserved recognition of a lifetime in football.
