The son of Percy 'Butcher' Ogden who played 161 games for Essendon, Gordon was a back pocket who shared his father's nickname and nearly played as many matches.
Ogden was cleared to Warracknabeal as coach in 1938. He had originally agreed to coach Brighton before getting a better offer. He returned to the city as captain-coach of Williamstown in 1939. He was chosen unanimously by their committee despite there being 11 applications, and rewarded the club with a premiership in his first season. He remained in charge until the end of 1941, returned in 1945 to captain/coach then again for two seasons from 1948. The Seagulls won another flag in 1949.
In 1947 he was on the VFL senior umpire list, officiating 14 country matches and acting as an emergency umpire for a single VFL game.
