Graham Minihan's VFL career with St Kilda was only brief (77 games and 32 goals from 1953-9), but for a brief time during the mid-1950s he was unquestionably one of the most exciting footballers in the land. Exhilarating to watch when in full flight, he played most of his football, both for the Saints and the VFL, on the wing. In 1960 he crossed to VFA side Mordialloc where he finished his senior career.
