Past Player of the Week - Legends from 1916

CHARLIE FISHER


Charles Henry “Spot” Fisher was one of the stars of the VFL during the turbulent years of World War 1. Blessed with a powerful physique, he was renowned for his long, accurate kicking with either foot. Twice a Premiership player, and a reluctant captain of the Blues for just one season, his stellar career at Carlton was all but overshadowed by Australia’s huge sacrifices in the War To End All Wars.

Charlie came to Carlton as international tensions cast a pall over Europe in 1914. A country lad from Kyabram in the Riverina, he played a sensational debut season as a versatile forward for the Blues, kicking 22 goals in his 16 matches. He then capped off a dream start with his new club when he was one of nine first-year players in Carlton’s gritty 1914 Premiership side. Alternating between the half-forward flank and the forward pocket, he was one of five single goal-kickers in the Blues’ fighting six-point Grand Final victory over South Melbourne.

By mid-1915, Charlie’s consistency had already made him a crowd favourite at Princes Park. His clever reading of the play, fine aerial skills and creative use of the ball led to him being described thus by one newspaper of the day; "'one of the few players, it could fairly be said, who cannot be held for an entire match.’''
