Courageous and adaptable, Peter Webster carved out a useful VFL career for himself with Carlton despite suffering from a weakness of the heart. He played under-age and seconds football with the club before making his senior debut in 1953, and went on to play a total of 97 games and kick six goals over seven seasons. For much of his career he played in defence, where his brilliant overhead marking, sound kicking and fine sense of anticipation showed up to good effect. However, he could also perform serviceably on the ball, and even on occasion on the forward lines.
