Biography

A NSW rep in 1940 after coming to C’bury from Newcastle, fullback Lin Johnson was the hero of the club’s 1942 grand final win over St George when he potted a late goal to win the match. Johnson's goal barely scraped over the cross bar but it was enough to give C’bury an 11-9 victory and the club’s second premiership.

Your Say

Gary Dunbar says: Hi
It would have been a long career for Lindsay to play in 1941 and finish in 1988! Lindsay played for NSW in 1983. Not sure about City Firsts, (11/08/2011)
