Biography

A tall, lightly-built winger or forward, Atkinson was recruited from Hamilton in western Victoria.

Atkinson managed 134 senior games in the Black and White, taking the VFL Mark of the Year in 1973 when he rose over Hawthorn’s Leon Rice, making a clearing kick at its highest point and landing spectacularly.

He did not play in any of Collingwood’s three Grand Final teams during his time at the club, and later played six games for Footscray in 1980.
