I can't find him on this list of highest scorers for Southport
they might have got the team wrong

His name appears quite a few times (in 1982) in a search of the Football Record as being in the Fitzroy Reserves squad, and also for kicking three goals in one game.

https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Bill_Pearson_(footballer)

He did play a bit for Essendon (1945-47). He tried out there in 1942: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/205283114

Perhaps the war intervened with his career? He picked up 13 Brownlow votes (from 15 games) in 1946: https://afltables.com/afl/stats/players/B/Bill_Pearson1.html

The famous 1000+ goalkicker was a player from an earlier generation
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/11117389

The La Mascotte Pearson was born in 1922 and served in WW2

By the way, I too have spent quite a time this morning looking for the Mascotte goals ref.
Perhaps rather than deleting for the moment, put that entry in italics ?

The Pearson name also holds a special record in the Essendon District Football League region.

Playing in the EDFL in 1939, Pearson Snr booted 28 goals in one match for La Mascotte.

The league record still stands today.

https://www.smh.com.au/national/hot-form-with-dogs-and-footy-20101227-198k3.html

Meanwhile, his natural ability as a sportsman in the Ascot Vale-Essendon area attracted the attention of the Essendon District Cricket and the Essendon VFL (now AFL) clubs. One of his feats, kicking 28 goals in a single match in 1939 playing for La Mascotte, still stands as a district record.

World War II interrupted his rise in sport and he served as an AIF gun-layer guarding a RAAF radar unit at a remote jungle outpost in Dutch New Guinea. He was invalided home before the war ended, with tropical dermatitis, perforated ears and tattered nerves.

He made his debut with Essendon's senior football team in 1945 but had to spend a period of rehabilitation at the Heidelberg Repatriation Hospital with many other young men suffering from what Pearson termed "scarred minds".

Football was his saviour. His confidence returned playing VFL - he was a star in Essendon's 1946 VFL premiership team, although injury during the season perhaps cost him the first postwar Brownlow Medal. He polled 13 votes to 19 by the winner, Melbourne's Don Cordner.

Pearson played in all 18 home and away games in 1947 - the year he married Joan Muir - but a crippling knee injury in the final game against Collingwood at Victoria Park ended his career. He was only 25 and had played a total of 51 games for the Bombers and kicked 24 goals.
