Under 19s Best and Fairest - 1960

Joining his brothers Brian and Terry at the Demons, John was on the list in 1959 and 1960 as number 40 but was forced to wait until the next year for his debut.

North Albury initially refused his clearance before the 1959 season, before relenting and allowing both he and Brian to join the club.

He played just two matches in his first season and was forced to have a knee cartilage operation in May 1962, after which he didn't play senior football again.
