The Free Press (Corowa) - - CLASSIES (03) CLASSIES - BY JARRYD BARCA

Corowa-Ruther­glen Foot­ball Net­ball Club will be joined by the fa­ther-son duo in a bid to help raise money for the club.

The spe­cial oc­ca­sion will be a part of the club’s ‘Fam­ily Ties and Auc­tion Night’, which will pro­ceed fol­low­ing the Round 12 se­nior game be­tween the Roos and the Wodonga Raiders.

“Just come along and mix with two Hawthorn leg­ends, Peter Hud­son and Paul Hud­son. Paul ob­vi­ously played for Footscray and Hawthorn, and Peter is a leg­end at Hawthorn.” Roos Pres­i­dent Gra­ham Hosier told The Free Press.

“Also, you can come along and help our club out with the auc­tion that the play­ers are get­ting be­hind and help raise money for the club.”

Mr Hosier is en­cour­ag­ing all Corowa lo­cals to make it down to John Fo­ord Oval, as it will be a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to meet a cou­ple of foot­ball greats with meals and drinks also avail­able.

Lo­cal goods and ser­vices will also be up for auc­tion.

“It’s go­ing to be a re­ally great day and ev­ery­one is wel­come,” he said.

De­but­ing in 1967, Peter Hud­son is sta­tis­ti­cally known as one of the most pro­lific full for­wards in the game’s his­tory, kick­ing a to­tal of 1721 goals from 288 games with New Nor­folk, Hawthorn and Glenorchy.

The goal kick­ing leg­end has booted the third most goals in Hawthorn’s his­tory (727) and was named at full for­ward in the of­fi­cial Tas­ma­nian Team of the Cen­tury in 2004.

Son Paul de­buted in 1990 for the Hawks and af­ter 134 games was traded to the Western Bulldogs. Paul was named in the 1998 All Aus­tralian side as a Bull­dog and kicked 479 goals in his 245-game ca­reer that ended in 2002. He spent his last sea­son and fi­nal three matches with Rich­mond.

The Fam­ily Ties and Auc­tion Night is a free event that will be on­go­ing di­rectly af­ter the se­niors game on Satur­day, June 30.
