George Bragge was a young Carlton player who spent five fruitful seasons with Norwood, picking up three premierships and a wife before going home in 1885. The grandson of two convicts, George was born on 1 December 1860 at Pleasant Creek (now Stawell) and became a cabinetmaker after his family settled at Carlton. He was 19 when he broke into the Carlton senior team in 1880. Described as “a determined and splendid little wing player who kicks well with either foot”, he was one of the club’s best men in his debut season.
