The Sydney Swans have been blessed to have many champion players don the famous jumper and Josh Kennedy ranks among the best of them.

Premiership player, three-time Club Champion, three-time All Australian and captain, Kennedy has forged quite the career over the last 10 seasons and 199 games.

On the eve of his milestone game, against his old side the Hawks on Friday night, we've compiled some of the best photos and times from Joey's brilliant career so far.

The packaged deal, Kennedy and McGlynn, from Hawthorn. Sydney certainly came out on top in that trade with both becoming great servants of the Club.

Kennedy soon became the master of his craft, winning the hard ball.

AFL 2012 Rd 01 - GWS Giants v Sydney
Was there a medal Kennedy didn't win in 2012? Brett Kirk Medal v GWS in Round 1, Peter Badcoe VC Medal v Port Adelaide in Round 3, Frank Macdonald Medal v Hawthorn in Round 5 and then... premiership success!
