John Vickers - more usually referred to as ‘Jack’ - was one of several high quality players unearthed by South Adelaide in the years immediately following world war one. He was a talented centreman, boasting plenty of pace, sure ball handling skills, and the ability to kick well with either foot. He was at his peak during the first two or three years of the 1920s, when he would have been a strong contender for a club best and fairest award were it not for the fact that South did not commence conferring these on a regular basis until 1923.

Between 1919 and 1925 Vickers played a total of 86 senior games for South, kicking 10 goals. A South Australian carnival representative at Perth in 1921, he made a total of four interstate appearances.
