JA­SON Booth was hon­oured for his con­tri­bu­tion to Warnbro Swans Foot­ball and Sport­ing As­so­ci­a­tion on Satur­day night.

Booth started play­ing WA Am­a­teur League Foot­ball in 1995 when he joined the Warnbro colts team when he was 18.

He has been play­ing ever since and has notched up 299 games.

Booth said he would have to play next sea­son so he could cel­e­brate 300 games.

On Satur­day night, the Ja­son Booth Medal was an­nounced at an event cel­e­brat­ing the end of the sea­son. The medal will go to the fairest and best player. This year, Booth re­ceived the medal for a fifth time.

“I was very hum­bled and proud,” he said, of hav­ing a medal named in his hon­our. “I will leave be­hind a legacy.”

Booth has three daugh­ters and loves be­long­ing to a club be­cause of the mate­ship.

“I love the so­cial side, it’s a good en­vi­ron­ment,” he said.
