Dashing goal-kicking half forward flanker who was a Mayne and Kedron junior before a short break from football saw him return in 1965 for the Windsor-Zillmere Eagles. A Dick Parton protégé, he had beautiful skills that were exemplified by his deadly stab passes.Ever humble and team oriented he was rewarded in 1967 with a Grogan and a Hughson Medal. Played 125 games for Zillmere and twice represented Queensland .
His glittering football career was to be somewhat surpassed when in 1980 he was appointed as the first Regional Director of Coaching for the QAFL. His first assignment was a tough one as he was charged with development of the code in Cairns, Townsville, Mt Isa and Mackay. Many thousands of miles were registered in his trusty Gemini. Almost three decades later he is still working in football, with a key role in talent development. He has spent time in football development roles in every football centre in Queensland except the Gold Coast.
His genial, generous nature sees him with friends all over the football community in Queensland.
