Charles Norris was a determined and energetic follower who enjoyed premiership success with Collingwood in his debut league season of 1910. Midway through the following season, however, after playing 18 games and kicking four goals for the Magpies, he crossed to Fitzroy, and was instrumental in that club's reemergence as a force after several years in the comparative doldrums. By the time he retired in 1918 Norris had played a total of 106 VFL games for the Maroons, and booted 19 goals. He was a member of Fitzroy's 1913 and 1916 premiership sides.
