Biography

He was a crack winger for Fitzroy and had consummate judgement. He could handle the ball equally well in the wet or dry. He took a while to settle into his new surroundings at Collingwood, but his class began to tell and his pin-point kicking became a feature of the Magpies’ game.

He captained the Magpies in 1908.

Drohan became a field umpire in 1909 and then coached St Kilda a couple of years later.

He was a member of the 1898 and 1899 Fitzroy flag sides and the losing Grand Final team of 1900.

He played in another premiership in his first year at Collingwood and he represented Victoria in 1901.
