CFC Life Member
Easily recognised by his bow legs, Alf certainly didn’t allow them to hinder him in any way as he covered an enormous amount of territory in pursuit of the ball. A genuine ruck-rover, Alf provided his team with great drive in what were ‘marathonian’ like performances.The ultimate running machine, Alf made it his mission to be wherever the ball landed. He was a 2011 on-baller playing in a forties’ competition, a magnificent ruck rover who would run all day.
As Federal League Best & Fairest winner, Alf was extremely well liked and admired as a sportsman who always gave good value to his team.
