Palm played at both Norwood and West Perth before joining Francis Bourke's Richmond in 1983. A tough and aggressive defender, he appeared in all possible 22 games in his debut season. Against Essendon at the MCG in 1985 he kicked five goals and in 1987 he had perhaps his best season, averaging 16 disposals a game.[1]

In 1989, Palm left Richmond for Springvale and was selected to represent the VFA at interstate football that year. He also served as Springvale's assistant coach.[2]
