Biography

One of the best back pockets of his era, Reeves was recruited from East Melbourne YCW and started with the Magpie Under 19s.

A superb mark and fine reader of the play, Reeves was genuinely tough and had the perfect build for a back pocket – he was built like a pocket battleship.

Reeves, a Victorian representative, played in the 1958 Collingwood premiership side and the losing 1960 and 1964 Grand Final sides.
