Originally from West Heidelberg, Wall played much of his football as a forward.[1] He topped Fitzroy's goal-kicking in 1974 with 35 goals.[2]

He played at Northcote after leaving Fitzroy but was forced into retirement when he twice suffered concussion in the space of three games.[3] On one occasion during the Centenary Cup in 1977 against Yarraville, Northcote brought his replacement onto the ground before Wall had been taken off on a stretcher; Yarraville called for a head count, and Northcote's score was cancelled.[4]
