This player was recorded as T. Mount which is not a common surname. However, there is no T. Mount in any public records that would identify the person that played with Wests in 1908.

There was one family by the name of Mount who had a son of the right age to have played for Wests in 1908. This was the family of Alfred and Margaret Mount who lived in Burwood Rd Burwood, opposite Burwood Park who had a son by the name of Alfred James Mount.

It is usual for a First Grade player to have some history playing lower grade football. A search of newspapers from the time found an A Mount and H Mount who played junior football between 1903 and 1908. It is most likely that the player A Mount progressed through the juniors and on to Wests in 1908.

Given the above information it can be reasonably concluded that T. Mount was Alfred James Mount of Burwood.
