LEAGUE FOOTBALLERS OF 1950 - CENTRE HALF-FORWARDS – Percy Taylor

Argus 10-Jun-1950 p6 Weekend Magazine

jack Mcdonald, St. Kilda's young centre half-forward, first attracted attention while playing with Camden in the Federal League. In 1947 he established a new record for that body by kicking 144 goals, giving him a total of 250 in two years.

Those performances sent him straight into the St. Kilda senior side in 1948, and he played in the first six games. Last year he was a regular player, being almost exclusively at centre half-forward, although he was tried several times as a full forward. In one match his bag was seven, and in another six. Altogether he has kicked 36 goals in 25 games for St. Kilda.

Finely proportioned, Jack is 5ft. 11in. and 12. stone, is a fast mover, a lovely left-foot kick, and a good mark. He is only 20 years and will be a better player with the experience gained in all sorts and conditions of games.

Born in Nagambie, Jack left there at any early age, but his uncle, Here, is well known both as a cricketer and a footballer. Jack is living in Caul- field with his parents, and is «a clerk in a big wool firm.
