One of the key figures in Fitzroy's upset challenge final victory over Collingwood in 1922, Stan Molan gave the Roys sterling service, mainly as a defender, in 111 games between 1918 and 1924. Strongly built, fearless, a superb kick, and excellent overhead, he could also take a turn in the ruck, and, when the opportunity arose, knew how to kick a goal. He represented the VFL on four occasions, and might easily have achieved more had the war not delayed his entry to league football.
