IN A tribute normally bestowed on champion players, the North Ballarat Roosters chaired their coach Gerard FitzGerald from the field on Saturday.
The triple premiership coach chalked up a 14-point win against Sandringham for his 300th game at the helm in the Victorian Football League.
He achieves a milestone feat only shared by legendary VFA coach and former South Melbourne star Bill Faul in the league’s 136-year history.
The Roosters playing group gathered on-field near the players’ race looking up at the coaches’ box and applauding FitzGerald as he emerged.
