Past Player of the Week

Past Player of the Week – Frederick Percy McCallum

Frederick Percy McCallum played for the Norwood Reserves in 1929, and the first half of the following season, before making his league debut against Glenelg in round 10, 1930. He played the rest of the season in the league side (9 games), and was named the Club’s best junior. His development continued in 1931 (16 games) and he won the most improved award.

A hard-working ruckman/ruck-shepherd with a strong kick, “Perce”, as he was known, played every game in 1932 (19) and 1933 (21). He was particularly impressive in 1933 winning the best and fairest award and playing in the interstate carnival in Sydney. There were strong rumors at the end of the season that Perce and younger brother Bill would ask for a transfer to Victoria, but fortunately for Norwood the moves did not eventuate.
