  • Born in South Australia, Hubert (Tom) Warhurst took great pride as a seven year-old in carrying the legendary Alec Lill's football bag into Norwood Oval on match days. At the time Lill was a teller in the Norwood branch of the bank managed by Tom's father. The Warhurst family moved to Melbourne in 1924, and Tom attended Xavier College for the last six years of his schooling. While at the school he excelled at athletics (running, hurdling and high jumping) cricket, football and tennis. In 1935 Warhurst played three games in the Norwood Reserves, kicking 27 goals. After missing a few weeks due to a chest injury, Warhurst was promoted to the League team in round 6, 1935. Named at full-forward, he kicked four goals in Norwood's victory against Sturt : 12.10 to 8.13. He went on to make 12 appearances for the year and was named the team's best junior.
