Originally from Albury, Dick Grimmond gave Richmond highly consistent and reliable service in 102 senior VFL games between 1959 and 1964, kicking six goals. Most of his football was played on the wing. In 1965 he crossed to North Hobart as captain-coach where he spent two seasons, getting his charges as far as the Grand Final, which they lost to Glenorchy, in the first of them. During his time with Richmond he had played once for the VFL and he represented Tasmania both in 1965 and at the 1966 Hobart carnival.
