Milestone Games – Round 16

Congratulations to our own Michael Ellway who will line up for his 50th game this weekend in the Seniors against PEGS! This weekend Michael Ellway plays his 50th game, I had the pleasure of playing with Michael all through school footy and then in our first year of under 19s. Michael is one of the most consistent players you’ll ever come across, every week he’ll play his role and when gets the footy you know something good is going to happen. His foot skills are next to none and his ability to make the right decision each time is amazing. This year Michael came back to the club after...

Milestone Games – Round 14

Congratulations to Ry Elphinstone who will play in his 100th game for the Eagles this weekend! Congratulations to Ry on 100 games for MOCFC. While it may not have been the outcome he was hoping for as he lined up at St Kilda’s father son testing day as 14 year old, standing at 165 cm and weighing 95 kgs, in need of a total knee replacement, he should be mighty proud of the career he has formed for himself at the Marcellin Old Collegians. Ry has risen steadily throughout his career at Marcellin, however the beginning to his career was far from a fairytale story. Being left out of Simon...

Milestone Games – Round 13

Congratulations to one of our favourites in Zac Tolley who will crack 100 games this weekend against Old Ivanhoe! I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Zac Tolley on the milestone he will reach this Saturday when he pulls on the jumper for the 100th time. Having played with Zac since high school days but also opposing him in junior footy, he has always been a talented yet one way player. Having been an integral part of an underwhelming 19s team, he relished stepping up to open age footy, playing a key role in the 2017 reserves grand final in his second year at the club....

Milestone Games – Round 11

Congratulations to Tess Menzies who will take the field this weekend for her 50th game against Old Brighton! It was preseason 2020 and my first ever training at the club. One of the first people I saw was Tess Menzies. We had last seen each other at our primary school graduation 9 years previously. I remembered her mainly as the girl who always won at cross country and our shared birthday, something we still find just as exciting as we did as 10-year-olds. In typical Tess fashion, she welcomed me with open arms, and those 9 years quickly felt like nothing. I think we can all agree there...

James Barbuto On behalf of the entire Marcellin Old Collegians community, we congratulate and commend James Barbuto on reaching the incredible milestone of 50 games.

James started playing...
