A ruckman who also played up forward, Dougherty started his career with Carlton Football Club but after two and a half seasons crossed to Geelong where he would play his best football. Dougherty was a key member of Geelong's 1937 premiership winning side, kicking 38 goals for the year and was the starting ruckman in their Grand Final win over Collingwood.
