Heroes - 150 Players, 150 Years by Garry Hutchinson
Book DescriptionAustralian football kicked off 150 years ago with many of the players who went on to make and shape the game we know and love today. This book celebrates the Melbourne heroes of every era of that proud history - from the foundation days of Australian football in the 1850s, when Henry Harrison and Tom Wills kicked off the game; to the first premiership, which starred the likes of Fred McGinis and Jack Purse; through to the exciting contemporary game starring giants such as Robert Flower, Garry Lyon, David Neitz, David Schwarz and Jim Stynes. Heroes have come in many forms. There was Bob Corbett, who inspired the team to a win in the 1926 preliminary final against Essendon by coming onto the field in the dying minutes with a broken jaw; and his team mate Jimmy Abernethy, one of Melbourne's best in the 1926 premiership, who in 1933, a year into retirement, still came to training - 'Just having a run to keep in form in case I should be wanted.' Name one, name them all - here are 150 Melbourne heroes chosen from more than 1200 players who have worn the red and the blue.
