North Melbourne have retired games record holder Brent Harvey’s No.29 guernsey indefinitely, in acknowledgment of his stellar career.
The 38-year-old was delisted by the club after 432 AFL games with the Kangaroos, after making his debut way back in 1996.
“I didn’t expect the No.29 to be retired, I think it’s a fantastic gesture though from the football club,” Harvey said.
“I wore it for 21 seasons, so to have no one run around in it next year will be a little bit strange when I watch the boys play.
“(I’m) obviously very privileged that the club have chosen to do that.”
Harvey, a five-time club best and fairest winner, passed Hawthorn champion, Michael Tuck’s record of 426 games in Round 19, this year against St Kilda.
