Tim ‘Bone’ Wolnizer played his 100th game for Penno in round 6 this season.
He’s been a bit of a journeyman footballer originally playing ‘a little bit’ of footy in Geelong before joining Penno for the first time in 2004 after moving to Sydney as a teenager.
After a facial reconstruction in 2006, he came back to footy, resuming his footy career with arch-rivals North Shore, playing 8 games in 2007-8. Then a knee injury brought about his early ‘retirement’.
In 2011, he was coaxed out of retirement and played 4 seasons at Macquarie Uni where he got to know club president Phil Hare. He played 55 games for MacUni.
In 2015, Phil Hare lured Bone ‘back home’ to Penno, taking on the role of Under 19 Development Coach. He’s been Captain/Coach of the Men’s Division Two side for a couple of years and in 2021 he is the Club’s Player Development Coach.
Bone is a footy diehard and loves to regale anybody who will listen to him with his footy insights and playing prowess. He is a dedicated and respected club man.
Congratulations Bone on reaching your 100 game milestone for the Demons.
