Jaye v Clarence R3

After 243 games and 547 goals as a Magpie, one of Glenorchy’s greatest, Jaye Bowden, is calling time on his illustrious state league career.

Bowden arrived at KGV from Brighton juniors as a 15 year-old, and debuted in the senior team as a defender in 2006 aged 17.

Of course, he would go on to make his name as a damaging midfielder and prolific goal-kicker, becoming just the second Glenorchy player – after Peter Hudson – to kick 500 career goals in Round 3 last season, when he booted six goals in a 62-point win over Clarence at Bellerive.

While footy has now taken the spotlight, the Northern Heartland Community Project continues behind the scenes.

In term 3, we have formed a partnership with New Town High School, where students accompany our club coach Paul Kennedy to the Foodbank to gain valuable life experience.
