Pacy and determined, Geelong’s Newtown recruit Alby Palmer caught the eye with his robust, purposeful runs along his wing. He could also play on a half back or half forward flank when required. Strong overhead, his VFL career with the Pivotonians comprised 53 games and eight goals in 1906-7 and from 1909 to 1911.
