With four Ovens and Murray League premierships to his name, The Rock-Yerong Creek forwardAndy Carey knows how to prepare for a big game.

“Itry not to think about it too much before the day because you can play the game before you’ve had the game,” Carey said.

“I try to take it as another week and another game.”

Carey joined the club at the start of the year sayinghe didn’t have any expectationsother than to have some fun.

Eighty goals later, and gearing up for a grand final, it’s safe to say he’s done that.

“It’s been a really good year,” Carey said.

“It’s a fantastic footy club and everyone’s really welcomed me in there.”

Fellow Pies forward Mitch Ward will tell you why:

“What he does that people don’t see is probably more than what they do see,” Ward said.

“The amount of blocks he puts on, the direction that he gives, it’s unreal.

“And not all his goals are from marks…last time we played (East Wagga-Kooringal)he got a goal from a run-down tackle.”
