1 Playing statistics correct to the end of 1956.
3 Coaching statistics correct as of 1968.
A tough, nuggety Bulldog player who embodied the club's fighting spirit, Sutton played as a rover and half forward, but it was as a back pocket player that he made his name.
After his retirement as a player, Sutton coached Footscray from 1956 until 9 July 1957, when he was unceremoniously dismissed and replaced by Ted Whitten. Sutton later returned to coach Footscray in 1967 (replacing Ted Whitten) and 1968 (after which he resigned having decided that the ever-increasing demands of coaching clashed far too much with his business of running a hotel at Yarraville).
