RICHMOND'S members have voted to retain both Emmett Dunne and Kerry Ryan on the Tigers' board. 

Dunne, a member of the club's 1980 premiership side, and commercial lawyer Ryan outpolled fellow candidates in lawyer Simon Wallace and businessman Peter Casey when voting closed at 5pm on Friday.

Richmond president Peggy O’Neal congratulated the pair, saying she looked forward to them "continuing to make an important contribution to the board".

Dunne, a former high-ranking policeman, was a longtime member of the AFL Tribunal before relinquishing the role in August, when he was appointed to the Richmond board. 

He and executive director Brendon Gale are the past players on the Tigers board, and Dunn said before the election that it was important for a football club board to boast directors "with knowledge and a feel for the game".

Ryan will embark upon her second three-year term as a club director.
