LEAGUE FOOTBALLERS OF 1950 —ROVERS

The Argus 29-Apr-1950 P6

JIM MOORING had the distinction of going straight into the Carlton senior side from the country.

Originally Mooring came from Piangil, but he was playing with Maryborough when he was signed up. Now he is assisting his father in managing an hotel at Bendigo.

He came to the club in 1940, and has played 126 games and kicked 150 goals, mostly with lovely drop kicks. Unfortunately he has a knee injury that has affected him recently, and it now appears that he will not play again. If that is so, Jim will be missed and remembered with affection.

The hotel in Bendigo is adorned with many trophies won by Jim in football, tennis (he has played in Country Week tennis in Melbourne), and billiards. While living in Melbourne he played cricket with Brunswick City in the V.J.C.A. He is married and has one child.
