Biography

Recruited from St Joseph’s, Utting was a highly respected player who began as a back-pocket and developed into a centreman.

A nuggety footballer who was a desperate player with a totally ruthless approach.

Utting always used the ball effectively and found an opponent.

He had to wait a long time to get a chance in the centre, but when he did he made the most of it and within a year was the state centreman in the 1950 carnival.

He retired at 27 because of his involvement in the family business.

He won the Copeland Trophy in his final season, and was the nephew of Ern Utting.
