Ross Lush’s career commenced in 1938 and ended in 1946. He played 51 games for North and an additional 28 games for Norwood-North between 1942 and 1944. In addition to being named Best and Fairest for North in 1941, other career highlights included playing in the Norwood-North premiership side of 1943 and being awarded the best backman trophy for the combined side in both premiership years of 1943 and 1944.

Some of Ross’ teamates in the 1943 side included North legends Jeff Pash, Owen Martin, Morrie Arbon and Wagga Hancock in addition to famous Norwood players including Jack Oatey, “Pongo” Sawley and Keith Le Page. This side, in which Ross played Centre Half Back, beat Port-Torrens by 21 points in a torrid Grand Final.

When the competition proper resumed in 1945, Ross returned to North and won “The most attentive at training with results” trophy before retiring in 1946.

Ross passed away in September 2006. He was survived by his wife Dorrie, who was a Life Member of the NAFC.

The North Adelaide Football Club acknowledges Ross’ contribution to the Club and salutes one of its premiership heroes.
