Roy Lonergan joined Norwood from Western Australia in 1928.  At 18, and having already played two league games for East Perth as a wingman, he decided to play for Norwood after his family transferred to South Australia.

He was a stylish footballer, and was a good exponent of the stab kick.
 
Lonergan was also a very good shot for goal and played his only game of league footy for Norwood against North Adelaide when his opponent was State full-back Percy Lewis
 
Born on 6 December 1909 in Maylands (Perth) and educated at Christian Brothers College, Lonergan first played A Grade District cricket in Western Australia when only 15. After moving to South Australia he became one of the State's leading batsmen during the 1930's.
