Fast, elusive, and a noted exponent of the torpedo punt, East Fremantle’s Ken Holt was one of the most damaging half forwards of his generation. He made his league debut in 1954, and topped the club’s goal kicking list with 60 goals the same year, a feat he repeated in 1956 (with 61 goals) and 1961 (39). He was a member of Old East premiership teams in 1957 and 1965 (the last of his 202 senior games). Somewhat surprisingly, he made only one interstate appearance for Western Australia, against the South Australians at the 1961 Brisbane carnival.
