Marcus Boyall sat out the 1939 season after Collingwood refused to clear him to Glenelg. A strong overhead mark and deceptively dashing for someone who appeared so angular and uncoordinated, Boyall made centre halfback his own.

He spent part of the 1940 season as captain-coach only to resign when things weren't going well. Without the coaching burden Boyall's form improved and he started to play better than ever. His form continued into the 1941 season, which saw him win both the Bay's Best and Fairest and Magarey Medal.

Boyall was stationed in Melbourne on war service in 1944-5, where he once again played for Collingwood. 1948 was Marcus Boyall's last season in top level football, once again playing for Glenelg. However he was based at Whyalla at this time and could only front up occasionally at the Bay.
