Bennett started his VFL career in 1930 with Hawthorn and remained with the club until the end of the 1933 season. The club was enforcing a rule in which a player who missed three consecutive senior games due to either injury or suspension had to return to the side through the reserves. Bennett disagreed with this rule and moved to Footscray for the 1934 season. The following season he won their best and fairest award as well as finishing 8th in the Brownlow Medal. He came back to the Hawks in 1942 and retired two years later after bringing up his 200th league game.
