Recruited from the amateurs, but only played one game in his first season. Irwin developed into a regular defender over the next three seasons, but a knee injury in 1947 ended his season after Round 3.
He missed all of 1948 and 1949 due to his knee before being cleared to VFA side Yarraville as playing coach before the 1950 season.
|Round 1, 1945||Striking||4 matches|
Shown in a 1944 team photo as D. Irwin. May be the Ron Allen at the club in 1949.
