Early in 1919 Murray Little left Melbourne to take up a teaching appointment at St Peters College in Adelaide.
As far as football was concerned he had a reputation as an, “enterprising forward player.”
Murray had previously played for Melbourne University and had trained with St. Kilda without ever gaining selection.
Norwood after a very poor start to the season were keen to procure Little’s services. Murray was not as keen but eventually agreed to be included in the side to play against West Torrens on 7 June.
Little’s Norwood career was to be a very brief one. Having played in an 11 point loss to West Torrens he then fronted for the following game against Port Adelaide at Norwood. It was to be his last appearance.
Being part of the side that suffered an 11 goal loss to Port on its own oval would have done nothing to foster his enthusiasm. Little made the decision to retire from football. He later returned to Melbourne in 1922, possibly after Term 1 at St Peters College
