Donald Neil Olds made his league debut in round 15, of 1953. He was promoted straight from the Colts. Ironically, the 18 year-old took the place vacated by his injured older brother Doug Olds (Norwood's champion wingman, 214 games 1944-1957) who had required a knee operation to have a cartilage removed. Don played five games in his debut season.
While he impressed in an internal trial early in 1954, the speedy but slightly built Olds only managed two league games for the season, and another two in 1955.
He added another seven appearances in 1956.
Olds moved to Sturt, playing 31 games (1957-1958), and proved to be a handy footballer, especially dangerous when playing in a forward pocket
