John Beckwith (footballer)
John Beckwith (born 16 September 1932) is a former Australian rules football player and coach, for the Melbourne Football Club
Melbourne Football Club
in the Victorian Football League (VFL). Beckwith's father, Wally Beckwith, was a VFL player for Fitzroy[2] and was also a VFL umpire. Beckwith made his debut in round one against Essendon at Windy Hill. Essendon had been premiers the previous year and as such it was the unfurling of the 1950 premiership flag. The players had to line up, and General Sir Dallas Brooks, the Governor of Victoria, came past. Beckwith was only 19 years of age, and meeting the governor as well as playing his first game of VFL football was a nerve-wracking experience, although he did end up kicking a goal.[2] Beckwith was a member of Melbourne premiership sides in 1955–1957 and 1959–1960
