Central’s past and current players and officials gathered at the Magpie clubrooms on Sunday as the club held their annual reunion function, headlined by guest speaker Barry Hall.

He touched on his upbringing in country Victoria and getting into boxing before switching to football, as well as his strained relationship with his parents and the work he had to put in just to be drafted to the AFL.
