Bill Swan played with George Cross in the formative years of the club after arriving from Scotland in 1949. He was a leader within the team and played with George Cross until 1955.

He was an outstanding footballer and loyal player throughout and was noted for scoring a goal or two and assisting making many more. His best asset was his fine dribbling skill and close ball control.

Bill passed on his sporting prowess to his grandson Dane Swan who was one of Collinwood’s best players in the A.F.L.

Bill was just three weeks short of his 85th birthday. Rest In Peace Billscan 20180531
