Stanley Costello played 131 games for West Adelaide in three separate stints, beginning in 1954, and ending ten years later. An old-fashioned, straight ahead, hard-hitting defender, he won All Australian selection after the 1956 Perth carnival, and was a joint winner of Westies’ best and fairest award (with Aldo Rossetto) the same year.
