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.
