After a year in Tasmania as captain-coach of North Launceston, he returned to Richmond, and played all of Richmond's 18 matches in the 1938 season, scoring 6 goals.
He then transferred to Wodonga as captain-coach in 1939.
He was the brother of Richmond premiership player Doug Strang and uncle of dual Richmond premiership player Geoff Strang and 1967 Tiger's premiership player John Perry. His (and Doug's) other brothers, Colin Strang and Alan Strang also played VFL football: for St Kilda (2 games, 1933), and South Melbourne (15 games, 1947-1948), respectively.
Along with his brother Doug (who was selected at full-forward), he made his debut for Richmond in the first round of the 1931 season, on 2 May 1931, at centre half-back; The Argus commented that, on debut, he had "showed grit" and had "kicked well".
In 1937 he coached North Launceston to runner-up position in the Northern Tasmanian Football Association; and, despite rumours to the contrary, he did not apply for the position of coach in the 1938 season.
He returned to play for Richmond in 1938; and he played in each of Richmond's 18 games that season.
In May 1939, Richmond cleared Strang to Wodonga. He was Wodonga's best and fairest in 1939 and 1940. In 1939 he coached Wodonga to a Grand Final victory over an Albury team that was coached by his brother, Doug.
