Brooks was named in a squad of 21 of Carlton Rovers who played Wanderers on the E.M.C.G.

1889 August 31
Brooks played against St.Kilda on the St.Kilda C.G.

This same team, with the exception of Brooks played Richmond on 20 July. William Mears was in the team on that day. A team photograph of that side has been obtained. We believe it is the Richmond game as newspaper reports mention the side was photographed prior to play. However, there is a possibility it could be the team that played St.Kilda. A poor quality picture of a player has been placed on Mears bio page. If anyone disputes that this is not Mears please contact Blueseum.
