Rover Jim Bicknell was fast, energetic and tenacious, and acknowledged, at least for a brief time, as a key member of the North Melbourne side. He arrived at North from South Kensington, and played a total of 57 VFL games for the club in 1933-4 and between 1936 and 1938. He booted seven goals. Described during his career as tricky and difficult to contain, the ultimate consensus was that he probably failed to make the most of his considerable all round ability.
