James Musster joined a select band of Prahran VAFA footballers when he played his 200th senior game on 13 May 2023. He joins Adam Sleight and Jack Matherson in the ‘200 Club’ since Prahran formed a partnership with Southbank Amateur Football Club in 1999*.
James is the most decorated player the Club has produced in the past 20 years as a multiple Club Best and Fairest (2010, 2015, 2018), competition Best and Fairest in premiership years 2011 and 2017 (when also player of the match), and Vice-Captain of the Team of the Decade (2010-19). His breakaway speed is matched only by his mental toughness, qualities that rank him one of the premier on-ballers in the Division 1 competition. James joined the Two Blues as a teenager with the inaugural Prahran-Caulfield Under 19s in 2007. One of the lesser known accolades of his career was a trip to Ireland in October 2017 with a party of 35 players and officials where he won the Spirit Of The Big V after a match v Donaghmore Ashbourne. In 2018 James addressed more than 400 officials at the VAFA season launch at the MCG. After he spoke about his experiences of the tour the chat on the floor was "what an impressive young man". That night, James Musster the footballer was elevated to James Musster the statesman.
James is a Life Member of the Prahran Football Club and a proud ambassador for his Club. It is our very good fortune to have him as part of the Prahran Football Club family.
Congratulations, James, on your milestone.
