DOB: 26 January 1958
From: Penola/Kyabram/South Adelaide
Secretary Jim Cardwell signed both Colin and his older cousin Michael with an eye to the more senior Graham - already a star in the SANFL - playing first but a clearance wrangle meant Michael never joined.
A left footer with a long kick, he booted a goal from 60 metres out with a strong breeze to give Melbourne the lead in an exciting last quarter at Moorabbin in Round 9, 1977.
In June 1978 he went back to South Australia, citing homesickness.
This article says he played six combined reserves/U19s games.
Most sources don't list him as being from South Adelaide. He may never have played with them but they may have held his playing rights to swap to the Demons. Also played some juniors with Central Districts but it's not clear in which order.
May have gone to Belconnen in 1979.
