A Collingwood (VFL) Senior Team photographed on match day. Almost certainly premiership year 1953. Black shorts. Big crowd

Further Work Needed

Note Waller started in 1953 and Tebble finished that year.

Part of General Collection so No High Res Version available

NSM Collection Version identifies the photo as a different Year.
Some assistance provided by Collingwood Football Club historian Michael Roberts

A Match by atch analysis identifies this as Collingwood v Richmond, at Victoria Park
Collingwood 9.8.62
Richmond 5.9.39

Note that Neil Mann did not play in this match and the two players that Michael Roberts identified as possible matches (Gooch and Batchelor) can be confirmed, as both played in this match.


Note death of Jock McHale and John Wren in 1953
