    While sport has taken a step back thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, it has been an important part of one broker’s life for the last 17 years. Back in 2003, Intuitive Finance broker Lachlan Mirams began playing football as a junior in the Under 10s and has been involved in the game ever since.

    In late 2017 he received a call from North Melbourne inviting him to try out for the newly formed Victorian Football League (VFL) team for the 2018 season. He was offered a contract and played fi ve games in his first season, kicking three goals against Frankston in his second game.

    Last year, Mirams was offered his position again in the second season and played another two games. “While it was a tougher year, being able to play round one as the number one ruckman was still a real highlight and made the long pre-season and practice matches worthwhile,” he says.

    Once Mirams started broking and client meetings took up more of his time, he decided to step back from the VFL, but he continues to play football locally with some schoolmates.

    “What I love most about football is the competitiveness and getting to go out and battle every week with some of your great mates,” he says.

    “The comradery and culture of a footy club is also what I love – getting to be in an environment where you train and play footy while having a great time with mates.”
