LEAGUE FOOTBALLERS OF 1950 - THE MEN IN THE CENTRE By PERCY TAYLOR

Argus 3-Jun-1950 p6-7 Weekend Magazine

OVER the years there have been few better centre men than GEORGE BICKFORD, of Melbourne. He has a good grounding, as he was at Wesley College, where the science of the game is taught. He was 19 when he had his first senior game in 1946, and has been a regular player ever since. His tally was 70 games to the end of last season.

George is unusually tall for a centre man, as he is 6ft. and 12st. Thus he has a natural advantage over most opponents, particularly as he shows great judgment in the air. Added to this, however, is a nice turn of speed, and the ability to pass the ball to the right place.

In the summer George plays cricket ' with Old Wesley in the M,C.C. inter club competition as a fast bowler. ' He is a salesman, is single, and lives in Balwyn.
