Wingman Simon Barker will become only the second player in Denmark-Walpole history to reach 150 league games when he runs out at McLean Park on Saturday. Barker moved to Denmark from Victoria in 2005 and played a key role in helping the Magpies win the 2010 Great Southern Football League premiership. Now 39, Barker is still roaming up and down a wing for his beloved Magpies and will reach the 150-game milestone when he takes on Railways at home in round four. Club legend Cord Brunings is the only player in Magpies history to play 150 league games and Barker says it will be a proud moment when he writes his name in the club’s history books. “I’m absolutely humbled to get to my 150th,” Barker said. “When I came to Denmark I was expecting to play one or two seasons and I’m still going at 39 so this is nothing that I expected. “A few people have played 200 games with colts and reserves but I’m only the second one to play 150 league games alongside Cord. “The 2010 premiership was a real highlight and I enjoyed last year, how our team really came together at the end of the year. In 2012 we came from the clouds to make the grand final which was pretty memorable as well. “Sam Lehmann has been one of my hardest opponents and in the early days Scotty Hillman, and more recently Zane Marwick.” Barker only missed the last part of the 2015 season and the first half of 2016 and said his wiry frame and fitness outside of footy had been crucial to his longevity. “I’m feeling good, the body is in pretty good nick,” he said. “I love my footy and seeing the development of the young fellas. “I keep a pretty good fitness base and do a bit of running outside of footy and I guess my wiry body has helped stay mostly injury free. I’ve been saying this is my last year for last seven or eight years so I’ll weigh things up at the end of the year.” Barker will have family and friends and a few old teammates watching on at McLean Park for the milestone but said in a lighter moment his parents made the trip over from Victoria but came a week early and were there to watch the Magpies win over North Albany last week instead. The Magpies will face off against the Tigers, who have also started the season 2-1. “It will be a good test for us, to see where we are at,” Barker said. “We are slowly building every week and I think Railways and Royals are the two yard sticks.” Also on Saturday, Mt Barker host Albany at Sounness Park, and on Sunday at Centennial Stadium the unbeaten Royals will tackle the winless Kangas.
