Camberwell Player?
A player named Woolf played centre for Camberwell in 1940-41. Based on age, it is likely that this is the same Woolf who played centre at Hawthorn in 1947.

1940 - Camberwell opened with eighteen of last season's players, the only new comer chosen being Woolf, a centre player from the Metropolitan Amateurs, as nineteenth man.
