200 Senior Games - Brad King & Trev Douglas
Well done to Brad King and Trev Douglas who both ran out to play their 200th Senior game for Mount Pleasant in May. Both are legendary cult figures at the club and fittingly both started at Mounts in 2003. Twelve years later they happen to be on an equal amount of games in what is a great achievement. Trev was recruited from the tiny town of Poowong in Gippsland where his strict diet of freshly squeezed dairy milk made him grow up to be a big strong ruckman, while Kingy was recruited from Sandhurst which pleased his old man who was a staunch South Bendigo supporter and was happy to see him move on from the Dragons. Both have had similar footballing careers at Mounts and now find themselves sharing the ruck duties while they live out their ‘twilight years' in the football world.
They were both members of the 2005 and 2006 premiership sides and have also both represented the HDFL at interleague level. Trev has captained the senior side a handful of times now, has been a club best and fairest winner in 2003 and 2008, and is also a dual Downlow winner much to Crystal's disgust. Kingy is happy to let Trev have the all glory as long as he gets to take home his bottle of Rivergate every second week or so. Kingy has also stepped into roles on the committee as his money counting skills are a handy asset for the club, and he has taken home so many awards at presentation nights over the years that he had to get his mantelpiece structurally reinforced.
Both are married with families now (sorry girls), and a couple of future Mounts ruckman in Nate and Jed is not out of the question. Trev's wife Crystal has generously helped the club for many years as a trainer and still continues to give her expertise when injuries occur on the field. Stacey has been a netball player for Mounts for a few years since making the switch from YCW and has also tasted premiership success. Both have been fantastic for the club and it does not go unnoticed.
Well done to Kingy and Trev on a great achievement!
