Pick 14 - Gavin Wanganeen
A822850F-37D9-4544-B1D9-6D58F086574A.jpeg

Brownlow Medalist
2 flags (one at the dons in his Brownlow year)
Indigenous Team of the Century
Essendon Team of the Century (back pocket)
5 x All Australian
Champions of Essendon (no.19)

We were blessed to have him play for us for 127 games before the lure of home and the chance to own part of a Scottish fast food chain brought him back to Port Adelaide where he continued to build his legacy.

Genuinely broke a lot of fans hearts when he left...but we all still love him.

Jack Clarke - Centreman in the Essendon Team of the 20th Century. Anyone that can work their way into the centre square alongside Tim Watson and Dick Reynolds, nudging Bill Hutchison to a forward pocket, has to be more than decent. Defeating Carlton in a premiership year as captain gets extra kudos.

Pick 17 - Scott Lucas

Scott Lucas. The 2nd Twin Tower alongside Matthew Lloyd, Lucas was a mainstay at CHF including the all conquering 2000 premiership side. A raking left foot you always felt he was in with a chance on the run from 60 odd, and set shot from outside 50. Lucas played a small amount of football at CHB and proved a very useful defender, however CHF was his trade which he performed with aplomb. He kicked 7 last quarter goals to almost steal an unlikely victory in Sheedy and Hird's last game when coming from almost 50 points down in one of the more remarkable individual bursts of football you'll ever see.

Most notable career achievement was the only time anyone in the history of ever can recall him using his right foot to set up Gary Moorcroft's 2001 mark of the year.

Exers, Gryffindor, Rich & Ess AFLW,
I'm needing a ruckman for 18 and a defender for 19.

The best ruckman in Essendon's league history is taken so 18 = David Hille.

I said I need a defender so I'm heading back to decades before I was born so 19 = Don McKenzie.

Return to Shermy I mean sender. (Address unknown.)

Tom Fitzmaurice.

Could be a case of "what if" when Tom left Essendon after 6 years at the age of 26 due to several players seemingly tanking against VFA team Footscray to lose an exhibition game played to raise funds for veterans who lost limbs in WWI.

Leaving us in his prime he'd just won back to back to back B&Fs, the last 2 in premiership sides. Starting his career as a high flying ruckman, a leg injury forced him to reinvent himself as a defender. Rarely outmarked or outbodied due to his size (192cm, 96kg in the 1920s was a serious unit) he was a force in defence and a key pillar in both flags he played in.

Games: 85
Goals: 30
Premierships: 1923, 1924
Best and fairest 1922, 1923, 1924

i think people are just making up names now.
Just making the most of Wikipedia research* until I backfill my side with players from the 84-85, 93 & 00 sides 😆😆

*wikipedia research is just putting “Essendon team of the Century” in their search section

Leon Baker.

centre/inside mid and half forward

183cm, 85k

1981-1983, 64 games and 100 goals with Swan Districts.
1984 - 1988, 86 games and 70 goals with Essendon
Premiership quality half forward and centreman in 4 premierships played at WAFL and VFL level. Was runner up in Essendon's best and fairest in 1984 and 1985.

Not a player I know a stack about, as he was before my time, but he strikes me as a modern inside mid with a real touch of class, possibly in the mould of Robbie Gray (perhaps not as dynamic forward but more of a true inside mid in the modern parlance).

If his records and feats as a player are anything to go by it is splitting his time between the WAFL and VFL that is likely the only thing that prevents him from being in the conversation for the greats of Essendon list.
