Archie Roberts (Australian Footballer) - Footballer - Prahran

Prahran

On 1 June 1938, Roberts was granted a clearance from Essendon to the Victorian Football Association club Prahran (the competition's 1937 premiership team), and he played his first senior VFA match, at full-back, for Prahran against Coburg on Saturday, 4 June 1938 (round nine). Most likely due to lack of match practice, he did not play all that well. He played quite a number of he remaining matches of the season, including Prahran's losing semi-final match against Northcote on 30 July 1938. He played at centre half-back, in his last match for Prahran, its 1939 preliminary final loss to Williamstown on 30 September 1939.
