Victorian Football Association
Career: 1877

1877 June 30
Brian was named in the Carlton Second Twenty squad to play the Clifton Football Club on the Carlton ground.
This match did not go ahead because the Carlton football team was delayed in getting back from Sydney. Rather than forfeiting the match, a "Senior" team made up of team-mates who did not make the trip, some former players, and Second Twenty players was cobbled together to play the scheduled match against the Williamstown Club on the Madeline Street Ground. Carlton won this match 2 - 0.
Clifton claimed the Second Twenty match as a walkover.
It seems the Blues had no intention of putting a team on the park for the Clifton match as they hadn't set up the goal-posts or even provided a ball!
Brian's name does not appear again this season, however Second Twenty team lists are a rarity.
