DOB: 2 October 1881
Died: 6 December 1952
A strong mark who was one of the best half-forwards of his era, and by 1907 the Redlegs best player. The next year he captained the side and played for Victoria.
Midway through 1909 he retired to work on his farm, but returned to Brighton in 1910. After an initial attempt at winning a clearance back to Melbourne failed he rejoined the club in Round 6, 1912 and played out of the season before missing the next two. He returned for one game in 1915.
Some sources show him as #26 in 1912. Football Record R13, 1912 shows him in #12.
Probably not #26 in 1915 as Claude Bryan who wore it the whole season played the same day.
