James Patrick “Tony” Redmond was born in the inner Sydney suburb of Glebe where he learned his early football with the Glebe Rugby Union team, from 1908 to 1910.

In 1911 he switched across to play rugby league with the Glebe Club. He made his First Grade debut in round four and played every game thereon until the grand final loss to Easts.

In the 1912 and 1913 seasons, Tony missed only two matches and played in both City Cup series. Glebe were City Cup runners-up in 1912 and City Cup winners in 1913.

Tony only played six First Grade games for Glebe in 1914. The world was preparing for a major outbreak of war, and Tony Redmond would do his bit for the war effort.
