Team: Carlton (VFL)
Location: Princes Park, Carlton
Date: 1933-41

People: Jack Hale


Carlton rover and half-back-flanker Jack Hale photographed at training, Princes Park, circa late thirties. Hale played 123 games for the Blues from 1933-41. He was a member of the 1938 flag side and played a key role in winning the game. He retired as a player at the age of 26. He is remembered mainly for his outstanding coaching record (South Melbourne 1948-49, and then Hawthorn from 1952).

The Hawks were at rock bottom when Hale took the reins and he lifted them into the VFL finals for the first time ever (1957).
