Career highlights

Alan Belcher (2 December 1884 – 1921) was an Australian rules footballer who played with and coached Essendon in the VFL. He was the brother of South Melbourne player Vic Belcher.

Belcher started his career with Collingwood but it was with Essendon that he established himself as one of the premier ruckmen in the league. He formed a combination in the ruck with Fred Baring and Ernie Cameron, culminating in premiership success in 1912.

He was captain-coach in 1910 and represented Victoria at interstate football in patches during his career. From 1912 to 1915 he captained the club again in 1919 but it would be his final season, a broken toe forcing him to retire.
