Noel Avery was a swift moving, elusive half forward flanker who was also perfectly capable of doing a job in the backlines when required. The highlight of his 112 game, 116 goal WANFL career between 1971 and 1976 was lining up in his usual half forward flank position in the 1974 grand final against Perth, a match which East Fremantle won by 22 points. In addition to his club games, Avery represented Western Australia in a loss to Victoria at Subiaco Oval in 1974.

In 1977 Avery joined SANFL club Glenelg for whom he played 17 games and registered 14 goals without really doing himself justice. He was not selected in the Bays’ grand final team that year against Port Adelaide.
