Stan played at full-back, centre-half-back, centre-half-forward and in the centre. He was one of the youngest Richmond players ever when he made his debut at the age of 16 years and 6 months in Round 17 of 1952 against Footscray. Recruited from Malvern Amateurs, he spent seven seasons with Richmond and was a member of the Reserves’ 1954 and 1955 Premiership teams. He then crossed to Tasmanian club City South as captain/coach for three seasons. He won the Competition Goalkicking award in 1960 and led the club to back-to-back Premierships in 1959 and 1960. In 1960, City South went on to win the Tasmanian State Premiership. Stan returned to Victoria in 1962 and coached Dimboola for one year before a back injury forced him to retire. Apart from football, he was also a fine cricketer and he represented the Victorian Schoolboys as a junior. His son, Jamie, played senior football for Michael Roach’s home side Longford. Stan died of cancer in 1992.
