Ellis Maney was recruited by Latrobe in 1924 and played under Ivor Warne-Smith. Premierships followed Maney in whatever capacity he served the club—as player, coach and later President. Latrobe was not out of the top four during the first period of Maney’s coaching, winning four premierships and coming runner-up once. Under his coaching the Demons did not lose a game at home for four seasons. Ellis Maney is credited with recruiting Darrel Baldock back to Latrobe, where Maney was president from 1969 to 1971, all premiership years.
