Solidly built, hard at the ball, and with a fine turn of pace, Reg Conole was a key player for Port Adelaide between 1926 and 1929, during which time he played a total of 61 club games, plus one for South Australia. In 1928 he was a member of the Magpies’ victorious challenge final team against Norwood. Twelve months later, however, he was one of four injured first choice players forced to watch from the sidelines as the Redlegs gained their revenge with somewhat disquieting ease. Still carrying his injury, Conole crossed to VFL club Melbourne in 1930, for whom he impressed after making a delayed debut mid-way through the year. Used mainly across half back, with occasional runs on the ball, he had played a total of 47 senior games for the Fuchsias by the time he hung up his boots in 1933.
