The Argus p4;
"Richmond suporters were grieved yesterday to learn of the death of their old centre player, Charles Backhouse. More than 25 years ago he was a champion centre-man with an ability for turning that was quite uncanny. He was a popular player, who played "hard but fair," as I heard it described. He played in the old players' match last year, and it was good to see the hearty way the veterans treated him."
