DOB: 21 September 1879
Died: 24 June 1962
From: Church of England Grammar School
Premiership Player - 1900
Represented the VFL against a Ballarat league side in 1898.
Herring only played two games in 1900 after moving to the Maryborough area, but they were both winning finals - including Melbourne's first premiership. In 1901 he missed the entire season until the last game where secretary Amos Norcott coerced him to come back as a replacement for the ill George Moodie.
Herring was also a talented cricketer, playing around Maryborough in 1898 and in the city the next year.
Shown in some sources as Melbourne's captain, presumably in the last years of the VFA.
May have served in the Boer War.
Also known as Maurice in reports of the day.
