Kelvin Mills

Kelvin_MillsA high-flying and strong-marking Kedron centre half back who enjoyed a short but productive QAFL career. A product of Kedron Juniors, he made his senior club debut at 17 in 1967 and followed with his interstate debut in ’68 before claiming three club B&F awards and the 1970 Grogan Medal by eight votes. Was also Grogan Medal runner-up in ‘72, and folklore says he might have been a leading contender but for suspension in ’71 when the votes of players ineligible for the award were not disclosed. Left the game at the height of his career and played in a premiership side with Palm Beach on the Gold Coast in ’73. Played six times for Queensland, including a game against St Kilda at the Exhibition Ground in 1969 when he changed in the ruck with Carl Ditterich, who was playing against his own side.
