Welcome back to “Crackers Chronicles”.  This week we will trace some of the history of the Old Scotch Football Club by recounting the contributions made by some of our greatest players.


Back on 5 August 2000, at a dinner to celebrate our club’s 80th anniversary, the club announced its “Team of the Century”.  However, that was seventeen years ago and unfortunately a number of more recent players missed out on selection.  Hec Ingram’s Best Team, previously reported, covered our best players before World War II, while Manson Russel’s Best Team covered the 1950s – 1990s, so I thought I may try to select another post-war best team that I have named the “Old Scotch Reserve Team of the Century” to include players up to 2000 ...

In his best Old Scotch team, Manson Russel described Don as a hard defensive player capable of closing down any player.

C. J. John McKenzie


In 1961, John McKenzie was recruited from Scotch College and played 119 games for the Old Scotch Collegians Football Club from 1961 - 1968, debuting in our Seniors on 22 April 1961.  John played in our 1965 “B” Section Premiership team.  He was our club’s Best & Fairest in 1966.  He was also a Victorian State representative in 1965 & 1966.


M. G. Michael Polkinghorne


In 1980, Michael Polkinghorne was recruited from Scotch College and played 84 games, all in the seniors, for the Old Scotch Collegians Football Club from 1980 - 1986, debuting in our seniors on 25 May 1980.  Mike was our club’s Best & Fairest in 1981.  He was also a Victorian State Representative in 1984.
