League Coach 1955-1957

Born in June 1921, after an illustrious junior career, Colin made his league debut as a speedy wingman for North in round one of 1940, a game in which Ken Farmer scored all of North’s nine goals. Such was his impact that despite the fact that Ken Farmer kicked 100 goals and the team included other champions in Jeff Pash and Owen Martin, Colin won the Best and Fairest Award in his first season. Suffice to say he was also awarded best junior.

He continued his brilliant form in 1941 and won state selection. Furthermore as evidence of his lightning pace, Colin ran a close third in the Stawell Gift in that year. The future looked very rosy for Colin but unfortunately like so many young men of his time World War 2 intervened. Colin joined the Army in 1942 and remained there until 1946 reaching the rank of Staff Serjeant. During 1942 and 1943 Colin did manage 25 games for Norwood-North Adelaide and won the best wingman award in both seasons.

Colin re-commenced with North in 1945 and his consistent form saw him win the Services Rendered award in 1946, the Serviceable Play award in 1948 and Best Club Man and best Utility in 1950, his final season at the club.

But Colin achieved his crowning achievement in 1949 when he played as a follower in the Grand Final win against West Torrens.

Colin was a great clubman and in 1955 he commenced as senior coach, a position he held for three years. His best year as a coach was 1956 when he took North to third place.

Loyal to the Roosters to the end, Colin was often seen at home matches. He passed away on Friday 17th June. 2011 just prior to his 90th birthday.
