Lou Richards

Lou Richards was a famous Collingwood football player he was born on the 15th of march 1823 and died on the 8th of may at the Melbourne nursing home at the age of 94. He was a magpie great, who played 250 games. Lou Richards state funeral was today ( 17th may ) from 11am.

The nick name he was mostly called was Louie the lip, the name everyone knew him by was Lou Richards. When he played his first match his age was 18y 84d and his age of the last match he play was 32y 151d.

I wish that was got to meet Lou Richards before he died because he was my favourite AFL player in 1901-1960.
