Francis Timothy O’Brien from Parafield/Salisbury played his junior football for Christian Brothers/Rostrevor College.
He impressed Norwood as a defender in the 1932 pre-season and was named as a league reserve in round eight for the match against North Adelaide.

Selected as a follower, he was used more as a wing/half back.
