Kelvin Moore was considered one of the best full-backs of his era and was a key member in the Hawks last line of defence for more than a decade.  He became the third player to notch 300 games after Don Scott and Leigh Matthews. 

He joined the Club as a key forward, but with Peter Hudson, Alan Martello and Bob Keddie filling the roles up front, Moore had to adapt to get a regular game.  His height, anticipation and even temperament suggested that full back may suit his style, and so it proved.

Playing in an era of full forwards that included greats such as Doug Wade, (Geelong), Peter McKenna, (Collingwood), Alex Jesaulenko, (Carlton) and Michael Roach, (Richmond), Moore established himself as one of the game’s finest defenders of his era.  Along with North Melbourne’s David Dench, he pioneered the role of the running full back, and his bouncing dashes from defense set up many Hawthorn attacks through the 1970s.  He was also very strong in the air, taking many a relieving pack mark to turn the tide, then side-step his opponent and drop-punt to position, which became a familiar and much-loved sight for Hawk supporters.

He was a regular Victorian representative during the great days of interstate football, and an outstanding finals performer.  His outstanding defensive game in the 1971 Grand Final may well have resulted in a Norm Smith Medal, had such an award existed at the time.  He also played key roles in the 1976 and 1978 premiership victories.

Moore played at a high level for many years, highlighted by his Best and Fairest win in 1979, his tenth year at the Club, in a team that included the likes of Leigh Matthews, Don Scott, Michael Tuck, Peter Knights, Terry Wallace and Michael Moncrieff.

His final few seasons were impacted by injuries, but he managed to get to 300 games in 1984, his final season.  After retiring from the VFL, he played for Frankston in the VFA, often as a half-forward and later served as a Chairman of Selectors for Frankston and then St Kilda.

He returned to the Hawks in 1996 to serve as a Club Director, Chairman of the Match Committee and as a member of the Coaching Staff lead by Peter Schwab, 2000 - 2002.

Moore was named at fullback in the Hawthorn Team of the Century in 2001 and was an inaugural member of the Hawthorn's Hall of Fame in 2003.  In 2005, Moore was inducted into the Australian Football Hall of Fame.
