Skidmore was a slenderly-built defender who played Under 19 and Reserves football at Carlton during the late sixties.

In 1971, he joined VFA front-runners Brunswick, and over the next five seasons was prominent as a running half-back flanker in three 2nd Division Grand Finals for the Association Magpies. Brunswick were no match for Caulfield in 1973, and the following year were thrashed by Coburg.

But in 1975 the Wicks triumphed at last; comfortably defeating Camberwell by 47 points at Toorak Park, with Skidmore and two other ex-Blues in John Warden and Doug Baird among their team’s best players.

In 1985 Derrin Skidmore would coach the Brunswick Reserves to a premiership in the Division 2 competition against Waverley.
