Footnote

Carlton to Preston
"Edgar (or "Son" as he was universally known) Yeomans played for three years and later became a well known administrator in cricketing circles, firstly with Northcote and later managing Victorian Sheffield Shield teams as well as holding senior positions with the Victorian Cricket Association. After a failed real estate agency, he became well-known in the new motion picture industry, initially as secretary-manager of the Westgarth Theatre in Northcote and later running the Sun Theatre in Yarraville. Remarkably, the pair are amongst just a handful of suburban theatres still operating today. Yeomans eventually built his own theatre in Footscray where he lived during the later years of his life".
