    Arthur Edwards wore #11 in a 10 year 120 game career at Footscray. He debuted in Rd 1 1951 and retired in 1960.

    A 185cm 80kg ruckman he played in our 1954 Premiership team and was recruited from Sunshine Tech. A fine mark he rested in the back pocket. Of the '54 team Ted Whitten was the only member to play on at Footscray after 1960.

    Tony McGuinness was a much decorated footballer who had a 16 year career spread across Glenelg, us and Adelaide. He played 325 games and kicked 361 goals. He played 108 games for us and kicked 109 goals. He won our B&F in 1987. He was a quality player - fast, skilled and a great kick on the run. After he left us he captained Adelaide.⁷

    He started out with #9 but then switched to #18 for six seasons. He was big solid player whose curly blonde hair could not be missed. A left footer, he gave us some good footy.

    Nobody brought up Brad Nicholson in the #9.

    In 1995 Jose Romero arrived and took over #11 for one season before reverting to #36, the number he wore at North. So we will discuss him later.

    Todd Curley arrived from Collingwood via West Perth in 1996, took over #11 and wore it for 114 games in which he kicked 47 goals. He retired at the end of the 2001 season and went back West where he took up a coaching role at West Perth and later he joined the Dockers as an assistant coach.

    Daniel Bandy arrived in 2002 and wore the #11 for four seasons. He had an excellent first year playing 22 games and kicking 30 goals. At 6'6" he was a big unit and he could run as well.
    All up he played 45 games and kicked 46 goals. His career was blighted by recurring injuries - 23 games in his last 3 years with us.
