This is Ron Clegg, South Melbourne (VFL) champion and 1949 Brownlow Medallist, photographed at the Lake Oval, circa 1949-51. Head and shoulders only.

One of South Melbourne’s greatest-ever players, Clegg played 231 games and kicked 156 goals for the Swans from 1945-54 and 1956-60. He played both ends of the ground, at centre-half-back and centre-half-forward. He won the 1949 Brownlow Medal and was runner-up to Bernie Smith in 1951. Clegg won the club’s best and fairest award three times - 1948, 1949, and 1951 - and was captain 1953-54 and 1956-60. He captain-coached the Swans 1958-59.

This photographic print seems slightly blurred.
