David Baker is retiring

David Baker has confirmed that he will be leaving the Brunswick Zebras FC to move interstate. This closes a chapter on Senior Men’s Football at the club as he has been without doubt our greatest player since the Senior Men team was established in its current form. We would like to thank him for his dedication to the club

Baker joined the Zebras in 2010 and whether it was the heights of winning the Championship or fighting in relegations battles in the Sumner mud he has led by example. A true clubmen, no fuss, stoic, and a real gentleman. Baker although a class above on the field always helped out off it. Whether running the lines or sweeping out the change rooms.

To put things into perspective for those who are new to the club, everybody around state 3 or 4 football knows of David Baker. He was a colossus, winning every header and tackle with those go-go gadget limbs for almost a decade.

Baker won our Best and Fairest award in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2018 (metro league) so it is with great pleasure that the club announce that from now on the Senior Men Best and Fairest award will be known as the David Baker Medal.

Thanks Baker. Good luck
