John "Hooky" DOIG
John ‘Hooky’ Doig was the eldest of the five Doig boys who played for East Fremantle in the early years.
‘Hooky’ made his mark from the start. He became a famous back pocket player and is claimed to be one of the greatest back pocket players that has ever played the game. It is said that he could move on his hands and knees as fast as an average man on his feet. He only weighed in at ten stone seven (67kg) and there has never been a more vigorous yet fairer player to have taken the field. He was most tenacious, combined with outstanding ability. ‘Hooky’ Doig had many admirers in his day and no player attracted more interest and attention than this man. Sadly ‘Hooky’s’ life was cut short, a casualty of World War I fighting the Battle of Messines in June 1917.
