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.

R.I.P Nudie.

A Sad Note

We at the Hobart Football Club are saddened by the passing of William (Bill) Halley.

Bill was a Member of our one and only Reserves Premiership in 1955 coached by Don McVilly  that thrashed Sandy Bay 110 to 32.

He was later a Member of our 1960 Premiership Senior Side coached by Mal Pascoe that defeated North Hobart by 4 points.

Bill had the nickname of Bullfrog and was a very likeable chap and a great team man.   RIP  Bill


As the season 2020 begins to look more likely to occur we’d encourage those who haven’t already to suppor the club and get your membership.

Hosted by Ryan Rosendale and premiership coach Will Perry, each episode the guys will sit down and detail just how this miraculous feet was pulled off. It’s a pretty extraordinary football story, one definitely worth hearing about!

Episode 1 will be kicked through the big sticks mid-week and will be available on all your podcast-loving platforms! 🏉 🎙
