Amidy to Play 300th Senior Game for Bombers

This weekend will see Killarney Vale celebrate a significant milestone not just for the clubs (40 year anniversary) but also one of their favoured sons, Dane “Draino” Amidy who will play his 300th 1st Grade game for the club and which will also see him overtake club legend Peter Kelleher’s record of 366 club games. 

'Draino' came to the Bombers in 1993 as an U17s player. In 1995 the spritely 17 year old kid won the Central Coast AFL Reserve Grade Best & Fairest award and a Reserve Grade Premiership. 

In 1996 and 1997 Draino won a scholarship and attended the Carey Baptist Grammar College in Melbourne. Draino returned to the club in 1998 and was part of the Bomber 1st Grade Premiership side, before spending the 1999 season in the Tamworth AFL where he played in the representative team that year. 

Draino again returned to the club in 2000 and has become a regular 1st Grader for the club since. 

Throughout his career, Draino has proven an elusive midfielder / forward who has racked up a good tally of goals over the years. Draino was a key member of the clubs 2007 Premiership side. 

Now, 25 years since his arrival, Draino will become the clubs games record holder. 

During this time Draino has won two 1st Grade Best and Fairest, has been three times Runner Up, won two 1st Grade and one Reserve Grade Premiership, represented the League on six occasions and was named in the Bombers 30 year ‘All Star’ team in 2008. Draino was made a Life Member of the Killarney Vale Australian Football Club in 2013 and a Life Member of the Black Diamond AFL in 2016. 

Draino’s milestone is not the only milestone that the club will celebrate this week with Scott Reid to play his 350th game for the club and Justin Daley fis 250th game for the club. 

We congratulate them on their achievements and wish them all the best for the day.
