Jack Anderson only played nine senior games for Richmond, but two of the matches were the grand finals of 1932 and 1933, for both of which he started on the bench. In the 1932 affair he helped seal the Tigers’ triumph over Carlton with a late goal, one of just two recorded during this phase of his career. The 1933 game ended in defeat at the hands of South Melbourne.

After playing only seconds football in 1934 Anderson was cleared to North Melbourne, where he proved himself a handy acquisition, playing 53 games and kicking nine goals from 1935 to 1939.
