After playing just a couple of VFA games for Port Melbourne in 1937 Andy Angwin joined Hawthorn where he made a big impression in a comparatively short time. Between 1938 and 1944 he played a total of 75 VFL games and kicked 10 goals, mainly as a wingman, in which position he was rated as one of the league's best. He won Hawthorn's best and fairest award in 1940, and represented the VFL in the interstate arena. After his retirement as a player he acquired near legendary status with the Hawks as a long serving, and extremely popular property steward.
