Biography

Ex-Preston Wanderers.

A reliable defender as either back pocket or centre half-back who joined the Magpies from Preston juniors.

Was on the half-back flank in the 1953 flag side and had been on the bench in the losing Grand Final side a year earlier after playing every game.

Injury prevented him from playing in the 1958 premiership team, though he did play in the 1955 and 1956 Grand Finals.

A masterly exponent of the drop kick with good ground skills, he represented Victoria in 1957 and was a keen student of the game with a fine football brain who later coached in Tasmania.
