Footscray's Geoff Jennings was a pacy and talented rover whose ten season, 137-game VFL career was frequently interrupted by injury. He joined the Bulldogs from Traralgon and made his league debut, aged 19, in 1974. A Victorian representative on three occasions, he was appointed Footscray captain in 1979 and held the job for three seasons. Persistent injuries forced his premature retirement prior to the start of the 1984 season.
