Career statistics

1936 and 1937 Seconds centre-half forward, who was cleared to Geelong in 1938. He played Seconds there before playing at Coburg in 1939, until having to leave in the middle of the year due to business reasons. He was cleared to a junior club in the Geelong area. Returned to Coburg in 1940 and was best and fairest, but his career was interrupted while serving with the RAAF (1 Embarkation Depot) during World War II.

He had first been cleared to Geelong in 1938, where he played Seconds, and finally debuted with them in 1944 after three years out of the game. It was the first time he'd played in defence, but he finished Best and Fairest for Geelong. After playing a pre-season game for Coburg in 1945 he returned for two more seasons at Kardinia Park.

Coached Geelong West in 1947.

Probably the Munday who was cleared to Geelong in exchange for Percy Taylor in 1944.
