One of the unique and wonderful traditions in Australian Rules football is where clubs draft players under the ‘Father-Son’ rule.
In 1992 under this very rule, the Essendon Football Club selected Dustin Fletcher, the son of former legendary club captain, Ken Fletcher.
Across six decades at the club, the Fletcher family name has combined for a record 664 senior football games.
Many consider the Fletcher’s one of the most successful ‘Father-Son’ combinations ever, and upon seeing this new Regal Greats of the Game Dynasty dual-signature card, it evoked a smile from both Dustin and Ken reminding them of their lengthy service to the club and its traditions.
Each of the 50-numbered gold-foiled cards have been hand-signed by Ken and Dustin Fletcher.
Ken played 264 senior games between 1967 and 1980 (where he captained the club from 1977 until 1979) and during that period won the club’s best and fairest award in 1978.
Dustin played in a premiership in his debut season in 1993 and again in the year 2000. In the same season, he was awarded the club’s best and fairest award and was selected in the All-Australian Team.
He played his 400th and final match on the 30th May 2015 and is only one of four players to reach this legendary milestone.
