Jaye v Clarence R3

Our next legend of the century is Jaye Bowden, who last weekend joined Peter Hudson in Glenorchy's exclusive 500-goal club with a six-goal haul against Clarence.

We caught up with Jaye before the game to catch his thoughts about the milestone, his career at KGV and his club's 100-year celebration.

This series of videos is part of our 1000 Magpies membership drive, and we are hearing from some of the club's greatest players as we celebrate our Centennial Season.
