Phelan proud to have stuck at it for decorated Lions career

Thursday, July 20, 2017 - 10:51 PM - by Chris Pike

CHRIS Phelan's 150-game milestone might have hardly gone to plan personally but as he nears a return from his knee injury suffered back in Round 10, the dual premiership winning midfielder has reflected on a journey he almost gave up on back in 2011.

Phelan has had a remarkable last four years with Subiaco playing in two premierships and three grand finals, two fairest and best awards and a state appearance for the WAFL, but it wasn’t always a given that the prolific midfielder would make it with the Lions.

When he was coming up through the ranks Subiaco was in the middle of a premiership hat-trick between 2006 and 2008. His lone game in 2008 came when Daniel Chick missed a game with an ankle injury but he was then straight back out missing the premiership of that year.
