Webb 150 WAFL Games!
Subiaco Football Club Triple Premiership player and Duel Premiership Captain Marc Webb will play his 150th WAFL game for the Lions on Saturday when they take on Peel Thunder at Rushton Park.
Webb was lured over to Western Australia from his native Victoria in 2001 from Port Melbourne to play for the Demons.
After completing a move across to Subi during the 2002 season, he has been a permanent fixture in the centre of the ground, regularly winning the hard ball and constantly leading from the front.
Marc was appointed Captain of the Subiaco Football Club in 2005 after winning the Outridge Medal (SFC Fairest and Best) in 2003.
He also claimed the Simpson Medal in the 2006 WAFL Grand Final as best on ground in the Lions 83 point-win over South Fremantle.
In 2007 Webb played his 100th SFC game, was named in the state squad representing WA when they took on his home town Victoria and he Captain the 2007 Premiership side.
Subiaco Football Club Senior Coach Scott Watters stated, “Marc has been a very consistent performer in his 7 years at Subi and has had a crucial role in our recent success.
Very reliable and a good player in pressure games Marc is an important part of our team both on and off the field and should be congratulated on such a fantastic achievement.”
Webb relayed his thoughts on playing 150 WAFL games and what he has learnt from leading the Lions to the 2006 and 2007 WAFL Premierships;
“You learn a bit more each year. You just can’t rest on your laurels or a good year, you have to keep improving and striving to get better.
Other Clubs are always gunning for you and the majority of them have improved so you just can’t rest.”
The club congratulates Marc on this significant milestone and wishes him all the best for the weekend.
