LEAGUE FOOTBALLERS OF 1950 —ROVERS

The Argus 29-Apr-1950 P6

FEW PLAYERS have a greater football tradition than LOU RICHARDS, the stockily built and determined rover for Collingwood, who is the nephew of another great rover, Alby Pannam, from an outstanding football family.

Lou is one of those tantalising o ponents who keeps his opponent guessing all the time, especially when he is resting in a forward pocket. Few players are so deadly at snap- shooting for goal. He is a brainy footballer, and capitalises on the other fellow's mistakes, and would make an excellent coach when the time arrives. He fitted himself for that job by attending the recent coaching class and knows all the finer points-in fact, he frequently lectures to juniors. He should know his subject, as he has been playing since 1941, and has played 188 games and kicked 284 goals.

Quiet and unassuming, Lou is most obliging in doing everything possible for the club. He was recently married, and, after having been in the house-designing branch of the Board of Works, he recently left that to join his uncle in conducting an hotel at North Melbourne.

In the summertime he plays a fair game of tennis. His brother, Ron, is a comparative newcomer, but is also a good rover who should develop with experience.
