A Tasmanian representative at the 1958 Melbourne and 1966 Hobart Carnivals, Apted was primarily a defender but was also used as a ruck rover. He appeared in two losing Grand Finals with North Launceston before being recruited to St Kilda. Apted could never establish himself in the St Kilda team over five seasons and returned to Tasmania where he played with Launceston.
