Col Stokes was a great NTFA full forward during the era between the wars. He served Longford and the NTFA for more than a decade but did not have an opportunity to represent the state in the 1930s. Stokes was a prolific goalkicker for the newly formed Longford Tigers and more than held his own against all comers.
