Ben Atkin trophy

Our next Glenorchy 'Legend of the Century' is one of the best midfielders Tasmania has ever produced, Ben 'Bucket' Atkin.

A 1999 premiership star, William Leitch Medalist and 3-time Cazaly Medalist, Ben was also a star for the Tasmanian Devils when they were a force to be reckoned with in the VFL.

Bucket's message to all Glenorchy fans is get to the Centennial Dinner and enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime celebration of 100 years:

"I just can't wait to come along to the dinner and catch up with all the people I was lucky enough to play with and just reminisce," he said.

"And also enjoy the footy the guys are playing this year. They've got a really good, strong side on the field, just get behind the club and get it going off the field as well."
