Allan Goad was a gutsy, tenacious on-baller who was not always a first choice for Hawthorn's senior side, but usually did well when selected. He made his Hawks debut in 1972, having been recruited from Korumburra, and the highlight of his career came in the 1976 Grand Final against North Melbourne when he shared the roving with Leigh Matthews, and contributed a couple of goals to Hawthorn's eventual 30-point win. He overcame a serious knee injury in 1978 to continue playing for another four seasons and when he retired had played a total of 138 VFL games and kicked 129 goals.
