Career highlights

George Michael "Specka" Moloney (7 August 1909 – 5 January 1983) was a highly regarded Australian rules footballer in both the West Australian National Football League (WANFL) and the (then) Victorian Football League (VFL).

Moloney had a formidable reputation as a centre, but more often played a key forward. Playing for Claremont Football Club in the WANFL, he won the Sandover Medal in 1936 as the league's fairest and best player. In 1938, he led Claremont to its first-ever premiership, and repeated the feat in the next two seasons.

In 1996, Moloney was inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame and in 2004 he was inducted into the West Australian Football Hall of Fame where he has legend status.
