BIO

Born on 30 December 1861, Harry Blinman was aged just sixteen and a half when he played in the Norwood second twenty match against North Park on 6 July and was named among the better players. A fortnight later he kicked two goals for the second twenty against Kensington and continued good form led to his selection in the last game of the 1878 season for the first team against Victorian at Montefiore Hill.
