FOLLOWING two heat-outs that delayed his milestone by a fortnight, Ken Gloster finally took to the greens for his 700th BBD pennant match for Bendigo East on Saturday and celebrated it with a thrilling win.

Lining up in division three, Gloster’s Beasties scraped past Serpentine 91-90 at home.

As well as his 700 pennant games with Bendigo East – the first in 1970-71 – 89-year-old Gloster also previously played 17 years at Underbool.
