Allan Everett was a pacy rebound defender whom Geelong recruited from Lismore. He played 117 games and kicked 25 goals for the club between 1934 and 1940, and he also made a couple of interstate appearances for the VFL. Early in his career he played a number of games on the half forward line before coming into his own as a backman. He combined shrewd judgement with strong hands, could take a mark, and his defensive qualities were first rate. The highlight of his league career came in 1937 when he was chosen in a back pocket in the Cats' Grand Final team against Collingwood, and went on to be one of his team's most effective performers on the day.
