Recruited by Hawthorn from Camberwell Juniors in 1951 John O'Mahoney went on to give 112 VFL games worth of fine service over the ensuing 10 seasons. Known as 'Bones', he was a highly gifted footballer who excelled at bringing his team mates into the game. He was unfortunate to retire in 1960, the season before the Hawks broke through for their first ever VFL flag.
