Alan "Bull" Richardson was a player highly adept at winning the hard ball and using it effectively during games.
"Bull' made his league debut in the opening round of the 1959 season. In a dominant era for the football club "Bull" was able to secure a spot in the senior side as a ruck-rover which culminated in playing a key role in the club securing the 1967 premiership.
Alan played 103 senior games for the club and a further 7 games for South Melbourne in 1969-70 (110 total games).
After finishing his career in Victoria, Alan moved to Tasmania and played as captain-coach for East Devonport. It was in Tasmania that son Matthew was born and played junior and senior football for the Devonport Football Club.
Under the 'Father-Son' rule in 1992, Richmond drafted Matthew Richardson continuing the Richardson family dynasty.
Debuting in 1993, Matthew proudly wore the #12 guernsey throughout his entire 282 games career at Richmond.
Kicking 800 goals he was a member of the club's Team of the Century and a 2007 Best & Fairest winner, along with All-Australian Team selection in 1996, 1999 and 2008.
More recently in 2014, he was inducted into the Football Hall of Fame.
At Richmond both Alan and Matthew combined for a total of 385 senior football games.
