Born 10 November 1958, Kerry Good was a dominant forward from Ulverstone who became not only a player but an owner of the North Melbourne Football Club. Good kicked 49 goals in the 1981 VFL season, including a career best ten goals against Melbourne in round 20. He is best remembered for kicking a controversial, post-siren, goal to win North Melbourne the 1980 Escort Cup grand final (also known as the Night Series). North Melbourne were playing Collingwood at Waverley Park in the decider and Good marked a kick from Malcolm Blight at centre half-forward, but the siren had sounded before the ball reached him. The umpire didn’t signal the end of the game, however, so Good was allowed to take his kick and goaled to give his side a three point win. Good finished his playing career with Ulverstone, winning the last NWFU premiership in a classic against Wynyard in 1986.
