About Bert Armstrong

  • Albert Clarence "Bert" Armstrong (26 February 1890 – 15 August 1969) was an Australian rules footballer who played with Essendon in the Victorian Football League (VFL). Armstrong, a full-forward, was recruited from North Melbourne, then playing in the Victorian Football Association.
  • He was Essendon's leading goal-kicker in 1910, his first season, with 30 goals. In 1911 he kicked 25 goals, which were enough to finish equal second in the goal-kicking, behind his elder brother Lou Armstrong.
  • He twice kicked six goals in a game for Essendon, against Melbourne in 1910 at the MCG and Collingwood the following year at East Melbourne.
  • Injury kept him out of both Essendon's 1911 and 1912 premiership teams and sciatica problems meant he didn't play at all in 1913.
  • Armstrong crossed to Essendon Association during the 1914 season.
  • He also played for Brighton during his career.
