The rover/forward was the fifth youngest débutante in history when he lined up with Richmond aged 15 years and 328 days after they had spotted him playing school football. He remains the youngest man ever to play for the Tigers.
He crossed to Melbourne midway through 1912 to follow Andrew Manzie aged just 18 but with 39 games already experience under his belt. He was also a talented welterweight boxer, starting his career in the ring at 11-years-old.
In May 1913 he was fined 10s and sentenced to 15 days in custody for missing compulsory military training.
As his boxing career took off Maguire started to play less football, appearing in just two matches in 1914 and missing all of 1915 while playing for Northcote. He returned to league football with Collingwood in 1918, and was back at Northcote in 1919.
After his football career ended he became a well known publican, operating the Bull and Mouth Hotel in Melbourne and the Bellevue Hotel in Brisbane.
He served in the British Army during World War II and passed away in London in 1950.
