Ray McArthur


Ray McArthur

Ray McArthur was an Australian rules footballer who played with West Adelaide in the SANFL.

McArthur played in many positions during his career including ruckman. He made his debut 1935 and was West Adelaide's best and fairest winner two years later. In 1939 he tied in the voting for the Magarey Medal with Jeff Pash but lost the award after an additional count. He was however awarded a retrospective Magarey Medal in 1998.

During World War Two he played with the combined West Adelaide-Glenelg side before resuming with West Adelaide when the war ended. He topped West's goalkicking in 1945 with 42 goals before retiring at the end of the following season, finishing with 152 games. On four occasions during his career he represented South Australia at interstate football.
