Tony Free has resigned from the Richmond board after more than eight years’ service.

Increasing commitments away from football led Free to make his decision.

A former club captain, Free won two best-and-fairests and played 133 games for the Tigers over 10 years before retiring in 1996.

Richmond president Peggy O’Neal thanked Free for his long-term commitment to the club.

“He has demonstrated how much this club means to him both as a player and around the board table,” O’Neal said.

“We will undoubtedly see him at the football and it goes without saying that he will always remain a valued member of the Richmond family.

“The entire board wishes him, his wife Paula and his family, the very best for the future.”

The club’s nominations committee will interview potential candidates and, based on skill requirements, make a recommendation to the board to fill the casual vacancy in the New Year.
