Anzac Day round was extra special for Peninsula Raiders stalwart Mark “Lenny” Leonard, who notched up his 200th appearance for his beloved club while playing for the 55s.

A passionate Raiders man, Lenny has filled many roles since he joined the club in 2000. Lenny’s list of credentials is impressive, including winning the 2010 and 2011 Reserves club best and fairest, 2011 Masters league best and fairest, and the 2015 and 2018 45s club best and fairest.

On top of his on-field achievements, Lenny served as the club’s vice president for 12 years from 2005 to 2016, holds the Raiders’ club record for games coached (60), and was inducted as a life member in 2012.

Lenny has become only the fourth Raiders player to reach the 200-game milestone, a truly significant achievement considering there have been 740 players to pull on a Raiders jumper over the life of the club.

The milestone is perhaps made even more impressive considering Lenny suffered a heart attack on ground during a carnival game at Pambula.

A huge congratulations to Mark – we all wish him many more enjoyable games to come.
