LEAGUE FOOTBALLERS OF 1950 -BACK POCKET By PERCY TAYLOR

Argus 22-Jul-1950 p6 The Argus Week-End Magazine

WALLY MAY came to Essendon with a ready made reputation - he was the son of a former star who later became coach of the team. He gained his experience in the seconds, his first senior game was in 1947, and, up to the end of last season, he had played in 38 games.

May is ideally built for a footballer -he is 6ft. 1in. and 12 1/2 stone-and can play almost anywhere, but he usually opens in a back pocket and takes his share of the work in the second ruck. While he does not shine in the air, he is one of the hardest men in the game to defeat. He is a first-class spoiler, and is the angular type so difficult to get around.
