Comment:

Played one season for Sandringham before being recruited to the Demons. Kicked four goals on debut but struggled to score and keep his place in the team after that.

After Melbourne he was cleared back to Sandy midway through 1977 and played in that year's Grand Final and played a grand total of 141 games for the Zebras until 1986. Played in a reserves premiership in 1982, and a senior flag in 1985.

Captained the side in 1986, and coached the reserves in the same year but was replaced halfway through the season. Returned as reserves coach in 1988.
