1 Playing statistics correct to end of 1948 season.
A rover, Mears made his way into the Collingwood team from the league seconds. Mears played 19 games for Collingwood in the 1945 VFL season, but usually started on the bench, so he transferred to South Melbourne in 1946, seeking greater opportunities. He had a strong first season at South Melbourne in 1946, finishing as their leading goal-kicker with 32 goals. He also polled 11 Brownlow Medal votes, the most by a South Melbourne player. Mears spent two more seasons at the club and then joined Mortlake in the Hampden Football League, as coach.
