Harry Krome, as he preferred to be called, debuted against West Adelaide at the Wayville Showgrounds in April 1928. He was a follower, resting in a forward pocket. This was a position he was to make his own for years to come.
He made an auspicious start to his career by being leading goalkicker in his first season. At the end of that season he played in the Grand Final. Unfortunately, the game ended in an eight goal victory to Port Adelaide.
Twelve months later Harry and his teammates had the opportunity to redeem themselves. They defeated the old enemy, Port Adelaide, by 41 points. Krome kicked two goals and The Advertiser named him amongst Norwood’s best.
