Of his 22 senior games with Richmond, Gordon Hislop played 17 of them beside his brother Max.
Gordon was a half-back-flanker. A dashing player he had a good turn of speed and fine anticipation. He was recruited from New South Wales where he had represented that state in 1922.
Hislop continued training with Richmond in early 1925 and was one of the players who took part in the March practice game at the City Reserve where the League's new out-of-bounds rule was first trialled (the last person to touch the ball was penalised with a free kick). Working for the General Post Office he received a work transfer to Ballarat Post Office, where he became the captain-coach of Golden Point. In April 1926 he received a permit from Golden Point to Tasmania.
Hislop was a member of the Tasmania State side that lost to NSW at the MCG in August 1927.
In December 1927 he was appointed coach of Newtown FC, replacing his brother , Max, who had coached the club for the previous two years (Gordon had played under him the previous year)
He was also a very accomplished runner who did well in the heats of the Stawell Gift. He was the younger brother of Max Hislop.
