Searching for Demons: Part 2


Recommended Posts

Supermercado, the creator of DemonWiki  is looking for information about players were either listed by, signed to or made appearances with the Melbourne Football Club in an intra-club, practice, Under 19 or reserve game but did not appear in a senior VFL match from 1897 onwards.

Cheers Jack,

There's already some information about most of those players in their profiles already, but anything else would be a bonus.

Also looking for old reserves and under 19's teamsheets to fill in more names of people who didn't play seniors.

This is one of my favourites from that era - the original overseas invasion

According to his facebook,Trent Zomer plays basketball now for a team called Ringwood Hawks in the big League

At one point he was playing for Northern State University in the US :blink:

And even though that sounds like the most generic, made up name for a university ever it was in fact true http://www.nsuwolvesathletics.com/news/2010/5/20/MBB_0520100650.aspx?path=mbball

That's actually now, by the sounds of it. Looking at the first paragraph:

Northern State University head men’s basketball coach Paul Sather has announced his first wave of signees for the 2010-11 season. The group includes South Dakota native Dustin Tetzlaff, Tom Parks of Cheyenne, Wyo., and Australian import Trent Zomer. The three – along with Aberdeen Central High School product Jared Hannigan, who signed during the early period – will enroll in classes and join the Wolves on the court for the 2010-11 campaign.

Sounds as if he's having a serious crack at a professional Basketball career?

Dugald Aitken played for Mt Pleasant in the Heathcote and District football league first year was 1990 I think he came to us from Balwyn. He won the clubs B and F in 1990 and 1991 he was BOG in the 1990 premiership. He also played in a losing GF in 1992 breaking his wrist early in the game. He played in the 1993/94 premierships. He then left Mounts we have tried to contact him for reunions. We believe he became a recluse and may have changed his name. If you happen to locate him we would appreciate a notification. He was a very popular player at Mounts. Regards Jim

    PICKET FENCE'S TRAINING REPORT REHAB  Clarry, Max, Farris-White, Melky, Matt Jefferson, Jakey Lever, Joel Smith & 1 Other I couldn't place. Glad to see the Club being ultra cautious with Clarry's thumb BUT the fact he is still troubled with it is worrying (God I hate Selwood) Got there at 10.50 to see Full match Simulation Game between the Blues and the Whites. Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
