Bruce Campbell was a brilliant, high marking forward who was among a swathe of players to debut with Subiaco in 1908. He went on to play a total of 93 senior games for the club, culminating in the 3.3 (21) to 2.7 (19) defeat of Perth in the 1915 premiership decider. Campbell also played in the Maroons' 1913 premiership team. In 1911 he had interrupted his career with the Maroons by venturing to Victoria where he played 3 games for Carlton before crossing to Fitzroy during the same season. He was the Roys' top goal kicker with 25 goals that year, and continued briefly with the club in 1912. He played a total of 15 league games with Fitzroy, and later had another brief VFL spell with Melbourne where he played 5 games and booted 4 goals in 1920.
