Career Statistics

Hamilton played for the VFL Seconds in a representative game against South Australia.

The rover was sacked by Norm Smith after a clash at a 1956 pre-season practice match. Smith believed Hamilton had sworn at him, and while the player denied it there was no arguing with a premiership winning coach and he was cut from the list.

Hamilton then joined Carlton where kicked 22 goals in 11 matches in 1956, but he didn't manage a game in 1957 before returning to McKinnon as player-coach. In the next decade he won the Federal League best and fairest five teams, including four in a row between 1961 and 1964. He was later inducted into the Southern Football Netball League's Hall of Fame.

From 1975 he worked as kicking coach at Richmond.

Name spelt Kevin in some sources.
