The Hobart Football Club is saddened by the loss of past player Brendan Free. ‘Nudie’ played 107 games for the HFC and was a member of the 1999 premiership side. Brendan is part of the famous Free family who are like royalty at the HFC. Brendan’s father, the late Kevin Free, and his 3 brothers all played for the club along with numerous uncles and cousins. Brendan’s cousin and current player Josh Young is carrying on the family tradition in 2020.
Nudie always loved a beer and one Saturday night after a game decided to have a snooze in the clubrooms after 1 or 2, only for everyone else to leave and lock the doors on him. A Sunday session had been planned for the next day and it was to everyone’s surprised when the doors were unlocked at lunchtime to find Nudie already sitting at the bar waiting for the boys to arrive to get back into it.
He was a fantastic clubman and an extremely popular and selfless teammate and will be sorely missed by all that knew him.
Condolences to Brendan’s Mum, Sybil, brothers, Martin (Chilli), Simon (Horse) and Nick, Sister Katie and children Lachie and Ella.
