Ray Marshall

Ray_MarshallOne of the great full forwards of the 1950s, he was the Windsor spearhead of the end of the club’s domination of Queensland football. Relatively small for a full forward, he compensated with great pace and a strong mark and developed a magnificent combination with Jim Trewick. His spectacular high flying finger tip marks and prolific goal-scoring were credited with a resurgence of spectator interest in the code in matches at Perry Park.

Hughson Medalist in Windsor’s successful years of 1950-51-52, his 123 goals in ’51 is the third highest in the post-World War II era. He was the first player in Queensland to kick 100 goals in a season. Essendon and Glenelg tried to attract him south but a lack of employment opportunities kept him with the Eagles. Ended his career with Coorparoo.

Played six games for Queensland in 1949-50.
