Congratulations Adam Bull who enters the elite list of Premier Cricket players to achieve 200 matches in the Round 1 clash against Casey-South Melbourne this weekend.
The Dog pads up for his 12th season with the True Blues this year and is again expected to anchor the top of the batting order on the back of his third Dav Whatmore Trophy for leading 1st XI batsman in 2018/19.
In fact Bull has made the Whatmore his own in recent years, lifting the trophy in three of the last four years. Quite an achievement.
Since making the move to the True Blues in season 2008/09 after six seasons and 64 first grade matches with Dandenong, Bull has added 135 top grade matches for the True Blues.
The hard hitting opening bat has piled on 4024 runs at a healthy 29.81, including 5 centuries and 22 half-centuries. He has a highest score of 163 achieved against Footscray in 2013/14 in a match where a rampant Jake Haberfield tore through the True Blues batting taking 7/82.
He's also enjoyed matches out at Greenvale in recent years with back-to-back 150's against the Kangaroos in the last two seasons.
And Bully is handy in the field too and has rightly earned his place in the slips cordon with his 92 career catches.
To Adaam Bull's career into perspective, if he had played all his career matches with the True Blues his 5,230 career runs would place him in the upper echelon of True Blues run scorers.
Congratulations Adam, we love having you at Prahran and hope there are many more innings ahead for the True Blues.
