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

Argus 3-Jun-1950 p6-7 Weekend Magazine

HAROLD BRAY, whose prowess is indicated by the fact that he has been chosen in that position for Victoria, "has been a great performer and club man for St. Kilda.

Harold played as a forward pocket and rover in two games for Prahran, and then declared that he wanted a clearance. His friend, Alan Killigrew, took him to St. Kilda. He played with the seniors in the "lightning premier- ship," which St. Kilda won-"our first premiership," as they said at St. Kilda.

From that point Harold has been a regular senior player, and rarely plays a bad game. His record to the end of 1949 was 108 games. The virtue of his play is in his pace-those first five yards that make all the difference-his excellent marking, his evasion, and, most particularly, his good disposal of the ball. All these (Illegible) are the hall marks of a real centre man.

In the summer Harold plays a little cricket with the Richmond Brewery team-he is employed there as a salesman-and he also does a little swimming. He is married, has a daughter, and lives in Albert street, Windsor, which is just a short stroll from the ground.
