Ahead of the Tasmanian Football Hall of Fame Gala Dinner on Saturday June 23, we are going back and taking a look at past inductees and their impact on Tasmanian football.
180. Martin Flanagan: Son of a North Hobart premiership player, Martin Flanagan developed into one of Australian football’s most respected writers. Author of the popular ‘One of the Crowd’ column in The Age for more than 30 years, he has also penned a number of fiction and non-fiction books about the game.
181. Chris Fagan: Originally from Queenstown, Chris Fagan enjoyed a highly-decorated 275-game TFL career at four clubs, winning premierships with Hobart and Devonport. He has since gone on to perform various coaching and administrative roles at AFL level, culminating in his current job as coach of the Brisbane Lions.
182. Andy Bennett: Arriving from the VFL in 1986, Andy Bennett was a fine TFL player and coach for more than a decade. Coached the TFL team to famous interstate wins over the VFL, SANFL and WAFL in the mid-90s before becoming a fixture on ABC Television’s VFL and TSL coverage.
183. Steane Kremerskothen: A remarkably durable player, Steane Kremerskothen is the only man to have played more than 350 games of top-flight Tasmanian football (TFL/NTFA/NWFU/TSL).
