Harvey Leads Team Out in Game 300

Brent "Boomer" Harvey, as we all know, holds the record for most AFL games. He kicked 516 goals for North Melbourne, two for Victoria in state games and 11 against Ireland. When he left North Melbourne, he joined his younger brother Shane at North Heidelberg in the Northern Football League. Now, Shane can share bragging rights with Brent - not for a games record, but goals. In a game played on 4/23, Shane kicked eight goals. His fifth was for the match was his 1000th career goal, a record for the Northern League. He is the first to kick 1000 goals in the league .Brent kicked four goals.

Brent was interviewed before the game by a local newspaper and said, “He’s kicked almost 1000 goals and probably set up half of that as well ... he’s had a decent little career. He’s been an absolute star ... of the competition for a long period of time, even when I was playing for North Melbourne I used to come and watch, and taking the brothers thing out of it and you just have to sit back in awe. I reckon there’s 300 in there that no one other person in the world could kick, he’s got some tricks young Shane.”

Shane Harvey’s career began with a bang - 108 goals in his debut season in 2008. He was also a premiership player in 2014 and 2017. He has played 204 games. He also played for Wakool and Barooga as well as Essendon (11 games) and North Melbourne (three games), kicking 14 goals in his brief AFL career. 

Just for the record, North Heidelberg won 23.18 (156) to 14.9 (93).
