An accomplished, left-footed centreman who progressed through the ranks at North Melbourne, Kevin Dynon played a total of 149 games between 1943 and 1954. Quite tall for a centreline player of his era at 179cm, he combined great strength with good all round skills and considerable pace. A regular VFL representative player, Dynon joined VFA club Moorabbin as captain-coach in 1955, steering his charges to fourth place on the ladder in the first of his two season stint in charge. He had earlier spent a couple of seasons as captain of North.
