He was originally refused a clearance by Ballarat, who kept him until after a crucial game against Ballarat East early in the season before letting him go. Jim Cardwell had to promise that if he didn't win a place in the senior side he would clear Orr back before the June 1 country clearance deadline.

A talent dual sport player, Orr also kept wickets for the MCC. After his time at the MFC was up he returned to Ballarat in 1954.

He was killed in a road accident on the Western Highway near Melton in 1955.
