Geelong's 1962 Brownlow Medallist Alistair Lord was an effervescent, attacking centreman who was continually in the thick of the action. The Cats procured him from Cobden and he made his league debut in 1959, often alternating during the early phase of his career between a half forward flank and the pivot. During his Brownlow year he averaged 30 disposals a game and finished nine votes clear of his nearest rival. Not surprisingly, he won Geelong's best and fairest award the same year. Lord was in the centre when the Cats beat Hawthorn in the 1963 Grand Final, but his form after that became patchy as he seemed to lose his motivation. He retired in 1966 after 122 VFL games. He also represented the VFL on eight occasions.
