Chris Keunen 100

12 July 2012

Former St Bernards OC FC player Chris Keunen has reached a personal milestone of 100 games with West Perth in the WAFL.

Chris a former Junior Premiership player had become the first player to represent our juniors while still attending Essendon Grammar. Since then, many of other players have followed the same path. 

On leaving our Junior ranks Chris  quickly developed into an important member of the Under : 19, 2003 Premiership & Champion Team under David Law.

Chris went onto represent the Club’s 1st  XVIII.

# Heritage No : 483 … Debut Rnd 1 / ’04  -  36 games. (inclu VAFA rep game)

Chris also represented the VAFA in the Under : 23 in 2005 and was a member of the ‘all conquering’ team which won the AAFC Triennial Series – Australian Champions - under Frank Dunell.  Chris played an important role in the ruck on the big Leederville Oval in Perth alongside team mates Andrew Gill and Josh Madden.

Chris, since departing St Bernards in season ’06, has developed into a fine ruckman within the WAFL. He still keeps a close eye on St Bernards and when returning to Melbourne to catch up with his parents usually joins the Club for a training session.
