Aged just sixteen years and nine months when he made his VFL debut in the opening round of the 1906 season, Percy 'Redwing' Scown was one of Geelong's youngest ever senior players. He went on to give the club fine service in 121 games over nine seasons, kicking 2 goals. One of the speediest players of his day, he was sometimes said to be too quick for his own good as he tended, on occasion, to overrun the ball. Nevertheless, his strengths far outweighed this minor deficiency. Tough, clever and combative, he marked well, and his kicking improved the longer his career went on. Most of his games were played on a wing, but he could also perform effectively on a half forward flank.
