Duo to play in legends game

STRATHFIELDSAYE'S Steven Baker and Golden Square's Corey Jones will line-up for Victoria in the EJ Whitten Legends match on Tuesday night. 

The former AFL stars will play with and against some of the great's of the game as well as some celebrities in the annual clash.

Former Bendigo Pioneers player and Hawthorn premiership player Brent Guerra will also don the Big V against the All Stars. 

Baker took part in the game last year. 

He said it was a great chance to wind back the clock and catch up with old mates.

"Last year I had planned to have an operation two days after the game so I wasn't going to play but I thought this may be the only chance for me to become a legend so I played and it was a lot of fun," Baker said. 

"It was great to play alongside players like Fev (Brendan Fevola) and Lloydy (Matthew Lloyd)."

Baker, who is in his first year at Storm, said he was enjoying his footy this season. 

"I am loving it," he said. 

"I was going to retire and then Milney (Stephen Milne) told me he was going to play, so I decided to go again," he said. 

"I was a bit nervous coming in and meeting 40 new players, but they have all welcomed me. 

"We have been winning games, too, which has been good."

The Legends match will be played at Etihad Stadium at 7.45pm. 

Tickets are available at the gate.
