RICHMOND icon Matthew Richardson will be inducted into the club's Hall of Fame at a function on July 11.

Richardson played 282 games and kicked 800 goals for the Tigers from 1993-2009 after being recruited from Devonport as a father-son selection in the 1992 national draft.

He won Richmond’s leading goalkicker award a record 13 times, took out the Jack Dyer Medal for the Tigers' best-and-fairest in 2007, was named All Australian three times, kicked more goals at the MCG than any other player (464), and is second on the Tigers’ all-time goalkicking list behind Jack Titus.

Richardson also is a member of the Richmond Team of the Century and last year, was inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame.

He will be one of four new inductees into the Hall of Fame at the 'Homecoming' function, at which an existing Hall of Fame member will be raised to 'Immortal' status.

There are now five Tiger Immortals – Jack Dyer, Tom Hafey, Kevin Bartlett, Francis Bourke and Royce Hart.
