Mostly used across half back Footscray’s Jim Greenham could also do a decent job as a forward. Recruited from Footscray Tech Old Boys he gave the Bulldogs steady and consistent service in 79 VFL games from 1937 to 1941 and between 1943 and 1945. His penchant for having a run in the forward lines is revealed in his career tally of 47 goals.
