The half-forward who was credited with inventing the banana kick debuted for the Tigers in 1966 after captaining their Under 19s side the previous season but missed the entire next year with a knee injury.

Campbell joined the Demons in 1969, but despite impressing with nearly two goals a game, further knee injuries curtailed his senior career. He retired to concentrate on cricket, playing for Victoria from 1969 to 1976 and Tasmania from 1977 to 1980.

He returned to football with East Malvern between 1972 and 1975, then played at Railton in 1978, and captained Cuprona in 1979.
