Two of Warrack Eagles' finest servants were acknowledged at the club's pvote count on Saturday.
Matt Richardson and David Stewart were awarded Life Membership for their commitment to the club which has spanned the best part of fifty years.
Stewart spent his junior playing days with Brim before playing seniors with Brim and the Warracknabeal Lions, where he won a premiership in 1994.
Since his playing days concluded he has held coaching and board roles with the merged Warrack Eagles and had a six year stint as the club's president between 2007-2012.
"It means a lot to me, I was very stoked about it all," Stewart said of the honour.
It was through a family connection that Stewart's passion for the Eagles stems.
"My dad was treasurer of the Brim footy club so it's just a family connection and just something that grows on you," he said.
"I've always played any kind of sport I love footy, I love the people you meet out of footy. I've got lifetime friends out of playing footy, administrating footy.
"I just love the place. It's always been a great family club and love it with a passion."
Richardson was equally honoured by receiving the Life Membership.
"It's a bit of a surprise, it was lovely actually," Richardson said.
Richardson started playing for the Lions under 13s side in 1981 and hasn't looked back since.
"I've had a couple of small absences away from town, but no longer than 12 months, but every year I've been involved with the club," he said.
Once his playing days finished Richardson has held countless roles at the club including being on the board for over a decade, recruiting for 12 or 13 years, matchday secretary, junior umpire and barman.
"It never felt like a chore," he insisted.
Over the years through playing and administrating at Warrack, the newly inducted Life Members have developed a great relationship with each other.
"Richo and I we've probably had a 30 year association with each other playing and administrating together over the years," Stewart said.
"It was an absolute joy and pleasure to share the day with Richo."
Richardson was equally grateful to share the moment with his mate.
"I must put on the record that it was a real highlight to receive it on the same day as Wacka (Stewart)," he said.
"I've always admired how he's contributed to his club and community."
Although both Stewart and Richardson don't have any official roles with Warrack anymore they are both still passionate supporters.
In fact Stewart has three children running around in Eagles' colours who he enjoys watching.
"I'm just a keen supporter," he said.
"I'm still active and keen to help around the club if I can."
