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

Argus 10-Jun-1950 p6 Weekend Magazine

CARLTON first heard of RAY GARBY- when he was only 17, but it was not for several years after that date that he came to the club. A club supporter at Cohuna heard of a good youngster and passed the word to Carlton. He was then at Assumption College, Kilmore, but his father was in business at Cohuna. Ray played his first senior game in 1946, and did not miss a game in that season. Since then he has played 71 games and kicked 100 goals, and has also played for Victoria. He is small for a centre half-forward, being 5 ft. 10 1/2in., but he is 13 stone and a bit.

Spectacular and brilliant, Ray is a little spasmodic, and, perhaps, too individualistic, but he frequently brings the house down with his brilliant marks, his grand kicking, and his splendid evasion. He can be-and has been a match winner on his day. He is married, lives at Northcote, and is a salesman.

AFTER much hard work Collingwood was able to secure MAURY DUNSTAN last year from Preston Association, and officials have had cause to congratulate them- selves ever since. With some experience behind him he began this season well, but unfortunately suffered a severe eye injury at training. Maury - naturally he is called "mocha"-had been recommended to Collingwood several years ago. How- ever, he had doubts about his own ability, and went to Preston, where he stayed for two years. Even then Collingwood had difficulty in persuading him to transfer.

"mocha" has a pleasing voice, and in a radio contest recently received a "two-gong award" for his crooning. He is serving an apprenticeship in the Army, being with an engineering unit at Broadmeadows is single at the moment-that is said advisedly -and lives at Preston.
