Career highlights

Allan Everett (12 April 1913 - 22 October 2003)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played with and coached Geelong in the Victorian Football League (VFL).

A hard running rebound defender, Everett was used mostly in the back pockets. He came to Geelong from Lismore and spent some of his early games at half forward. Everett, a dual VFL interstate representative, was a member of Geelong's premiership team in 1937. He was captain-coach of Geelong for part of the 1940 season and steered the club to seven wins.

He crossed to Victorian Football Association club Preston without a clearance in 1941.[2]
