The youngest player ever to debut for the club, Stone played five games in his first two years before enlisting in the Navy as soon as he turned 18. After the war he returned to Hastings, before returning to the VFL as a tall defender in 1949. He had trouble regularly attending training and went back to Hastings after three games, playing there through 1952 and winning the Mornington Peninsula League's best player award three times.

Also shown as from Somers, though this is more likely his place of residence rather than a team. May have also played at Frankston High School.
