LEGENDARY full-forward Tony Lockett paid tribute to St Kilda's newest official Legend, Robert Harvey, on Saturday night.

Glenn Elliot and Stuart Trott were inducted into St Kilda's Hall of Fame.

Lockett rarely appears in the public spotlight, but his respect for the midfielder meant he wanted to introduce Harvey.

Lockett paid tribute to the club, the 1966 premiership team and Elliot and Trott, before speaking about the eight-time All-Australian.

"It's a great honour and privilege to elevate the great Robert Harvey to Legend status, which is something he thoroughly deserves," Lockett said.

"Robert is one of, if not the greatest, players to ever play for this club.

"He is, quite simply, a phenomenal person and a great footballer."

Harvey joins Lockett, Darrel Baldock, Ian Stewart, Allan Jeans, Trevor Barker, Neil Roberts and Ross Smith as a Saints Legend.

Harvey played 383 games, debuting in 1988 and retiring after St Kilda's 2008 preliminary final loss to eventual premiers Hawthorn.

He was a dual Brownlow medallist, winning the prestigious award in 1997 and 1998.

Elliot, a centreman, played 139 matches and represented Victoria four times.

Trott played on the wing, notching up 159 games at St Kilda, before playing 41 matches for Hawthorn.

In his typically humble manner, Harvey spent most of his speech thanking those who supported him through 21 years playing in the AFL.

He also acknowledged the massive part the football club has played in his life.

"Thanks in particular to Plugger for coming down. It means a great deal to me," Harvey said.
