Past Player of the Week

Past Player of the Week – Don Woodcock

The elder brother of Brian and Roger, Don Woodcock was a great clubman who represented the Norwood Football Club from 1962 to 1970.

Educated at Norwood High School, he played Colts and Thirds, and during 1962 was promoted to the Reserves. Don played enough games at that level to win the most consistent award for 1962.

He started his senior career at Norwood on a half forward flank. A good mark and strong kick,  he was a great exponent of the drop-kick in particular.

Don played 68 league games and 105 reserves games in his time with the Redlegs and was a consistent performer throughout. He was casual and laid-back off the field, traits reflected in the way he went about his footy.
