George Salmon joined Norwood from the Maylands Football Club in the East Torrens Association near the end of the 1932 season.
A rover/forward, he made an immediate impression for the Redlegs reserves. After only a couple of appearances, he kicked seven goals and was named best on ground in the reserves preliminary final victory against Port Adelaide.
Salmon was again prominent in the reserves Grand Final against North Adelaide, where he kicked four goals and was one of the better players in a losing side. He was named as a rover changing out of a forward pocket.
The following year Salmon was in fine form early. He played well in the pre-season trials and was close to best on ground in the first round of reserves football.
He made his league debut in a drawn match against Port Adelaide at Alberton in round two, 1933. The quick and fearless rover was an important contributor and was named in the best players.
Salmon went on to play 13 league games in his first season of senior football and was named Norwood's most consistent player.
In 1934 Salmon played another seven league matches for the Redlegs.
While he struggled to play regularly for the seniors, Salmon proved to be a particularly handy goal-kicker in his time at Norwood
