Shorten was the centre half back in Collingwood's 1910 premiership team. His involvement in a second half melee kept him out of action for the entire 1911 season as he received a 28 games suspension for striking, exactly the same punishment handed out to Carlton's Percy Sheehan. It remains the longest suspension ever for a Collingwood player.
