Arthur Tulloh (sometimes referred to by his second forename of Percy) was a prolific forward who was a regular member of Melbourne teams between 1921 and 1924 before appearing only sporadically in his final three seasons. Normally deployed in a forward pocket or on a half forward flank rather than in a key position, he was the Fuchsias’ top goal kicker in 1923 with 31 goals and 1924 with 24. He played for VFL representative teams in 1922-3-4. In round 13 of his final season at Melbourne he notched a career high seven goals against South Melbourne, but it was one of only three matches he played for the year. He ended his time with the Redlegs having played 69 games and scored 115 goals.

Tulloh spent the first half of the 1928 season with St Kilda, adding a final three appearances and two goals to his respective VFL career tallies, before crossing to Prahran in the VFA mid-year, for whom he played seven games. He rounded off his career with a couple of seasons at fellow VFA club Brighton, playing 28 games without kicking a goal. He finished his playing career in fine form as evidenced by his winning the Penguins’ 1930 best and fairest award.
