After joining Carlton from West Gippsland Football Association side Pakenham, having earlier played with Teachers' College in the Amateur League, Don McIntyre made his VFL debut in 1935, and went on to play a total of precisely 100 senior games over the next eight seasons. Slimly built, he was a quick, reliable defender, who played in the back pocket when the Blues overcame Collingwood by 15 points in the 1938 Grand Final. He boasted excellent judgement, and was conscientious in backing up his full back, while both his kicking and marking were sound.
