A Collingwood Districts product, Ted or 'Tich' Utting was a wholehearted trier who was not reticent about hurling his chunky frame into the thick of the action. He played with Preston in 1917 and 1918 and commenced with Collingwood in 1919, but struggled to make his mark owing to the preponderance of fine players at the club. In four seasons with the Magpies, Utting managed just 16 senior appearances, kicking 29 goals. He returned to Preston in 1923 before embarking on the second phase of his VFL career with Hawthorn, which gained admission to the competition in 1925. Between 1925 and 1932 Utting was one of the Mayblooms' most consistently effective performers, playing a total of 101 senior games and kicking 28 goals.
