History of the Carlton Football Club

8 seasons on a senior list.???Luke Lowden. Played 1 game for Hawthorn as a back up ruckman. Kicked 3 goals and had a pretty decent debut. 12 disposals, 15 hitouts, 2 tackles and 81 Supercoach points. Dropped the next week and was subsequently traded to Adelaide. Never played a game and was delisted last year I believe. 1 career game and nothing else. Always felt for the bloke.
IIRC Kirzner was one of those kids that put a high price on himself before getting drafted, that caused the playing list to think he was bit of a tosser. Big money but little output caused resentment so he had to go.Anyone who supported Essendon in the 90s will remember the name Julian Kirzner.
Kicked bags in the reserves as an 18, 19 year old but never quite managed to crack the senior team. You'd see the twos every week and he'd be kicking bags and everybody wanted to know why Sheedy wouldn't play him. He ended up playing one senior game for Essendon before getting delisted.
He had stints at Carlton and North as well. 5 seasons, 4 senior games, 6 goals, and a mountain of goals in the reserves. Went to North Ballarat when they joined the VFL and did well there I think.
The Thanos career.Ian O'Halloran (Geelong), Lloyd Brewer (Richmond), Ron Kennedy (Essendon), Ron Ellis (St. Kilda), Alby Williams (North Melbourne) and Willis Hardy (Carlton) are players hardly remembered today, nor would this be expected given they each just played 3 games and all many years ago.
However, these 6 former players are in an exclusive club - their 3 match careers each consisted of 1 win, 1 loss and 1 draw.
What a brilliant post.Max Wilson, who played 9 games for Carlton in 1943 & 1944 was born in July 1914 and died in 2017, was the only player to have been alive when all 21 AFL/VFL clubs were in existence. Another Wilson, a Don Wilson who played 7 games for Footscray in the late 1930s lived from 1914-2015 but was born in October, and unlike Max was not alive when University was playing.
Harry Selover who played 3 games for Melbourne in 1919, is the only player who lived in 3 centuries. He was born on 24/07/1898, and died 18/05/2001.
Pretty obscure in the Collingwood records! I see they don't even have a photo of him on Collingwood Forever - where he's known as Darcy McDougall. He can be seen in this Sturt team photo (D. V. McDougall) from 1915: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/164201549
This name being thrown up has worked out very well!! I received a very nice email from Michael Roberts [Collingwood History & Archives Manager] earlier today. Whereas they didn't have a photo of the player previously, they now have several to pick from (and have one up on his Collingwood Forever page). Michael said "He looks very similar to Bertie McDougall, who played for us in 1910, so I wonder if they're brothers? We'll do some more digging."
I did spot that name in my "travels" and wondered the same thing. I don't have any idea at this stage, but it's also worth looking into.not related to this J.mcdougall?
They call him Doug in the photo you just posted (Collingwood Forever have actually chosen to go with this picture, so they must have found this one themselves, after I sent the other ones):I'm still not 100% doug and darcy are the same person
the sturt history book (True Blue p 56) has doug joining
up for the war in early 1916
I can't locate a war service record for dv (darcy) mcdougall
Here's a P.S. to the Darcy (Doug) McDougall story, and I find this rather extraordinary! Having played just the one game for Collingwood (in 1904) as an 18-year-old, then having a very successful career in SA, he chose to return 'home' to Collingwood in 1919. He was 33 by this time! The SAFL wasn't operating from 1916-18 so it's quite possible he didn't play football in that time.
