St Kilda recruited Alan Squire from Melbourne High School Old Boys and he proved to be a highly dependable follower and defender over 108 VFL games between 1948 and 1954. Strong overhead, and clever on the ground, he represented the VFL in 1951, and was always hard to beat. During the early part of his career he often rested in the forward pocket to damaging effect.
