Sporting history will be made in Launceston this Friday, as the Evandale Football Club celebrates its 125-year anniversary with an Aussie Legends Sporting Luncheon at Country Club Tasmania.
Football won’t be the only sport represented at the function, with Winter Olympic gold medallist Steven Bradbury, radio personality Rex Hunt, comedian Chris Franklin, cricket legend Jeff Thompson and former jockey Malcolm Johnston also scheduled to attend. Tickets have already sold out for the event, with former speed skater Bradbury excited to be sharing the stage with the other high-profile guests.
“There are some great people on the bill, so I’m not sure how long they’ll want to listen to me for,” he said.
“I’ve done a few gigs with Malcolm Johnston in the past, and he is very funny to listen to.”
