headingbars.jpgPast Player of the Week - Legends from 1916
show_image.php?id=38598

PERCY DAYKIN


The youngest of three brothers from South Bendigo who all played VFL football, Percy ‘Dub’ Daykin was a two-time Premiership star for the Old Dark Navy Blues during the dark days of World War 1. From the day he made his debut in round 1, 1914 until his retirement, Daykin was only ever left out of Carlton’s senior team when he was ill or injured. A noted big-match performer, he played finals football in every one of his eight seasons with the Blues, including no less than four Grand Finals.

Percy’s eldest brother was Richard, whose 21 games at Collingwood included a follower’s role in the Magpies’ 1910 Premiership. Next in line was Bert, who played 32 games for Essendon between 1908 and 1910. Percy chose Carlton when it came time for him to test his ability at the highest level, and he proved to be the most accomplished of the Daykin boys by a wide margin.

‘Dub’ played in a variety of positions during his first few seasons at Princes Park, but proved most effective as a creative on-baller, in tandem with Harry Haughton and Viv Valentine. He was a member of Carlton’s 1914 Premiership team in only his 20th game, and just about best on ground when the Blues claimed another flag in 1915.
