Players of note

Alex Marcou is a former Australian rules footballer. He played with Carlton and St Kilda in the Victorian Football League (VFL) during the 1980s.

David Glascott is a former Australian rules footballer who played for Carlton in the VFL during the 1980s. Glascott usually played as a wingman and started his league career as a premiership player in 1981 and 1982. Later on in his career he was used in both attack and defence as well as being a rover. He was wiry for his height, but he lacked nothing in courage or speed and was always getting the ball for the champion Blues teams of the 1980s. Glascott’s career suffered greatly when he suffered a season-ending shoulder dislocation early in 1989: when he did come back in 1990 and 1991, Glascott took over the role of Reserves captain and played in a premiership team to complement his 1979 Under-19 and three senior flag sides. In 1993, he played for VFA club Frankston.

Stuart Glascott is a former Australian rules footballer who played with the Brisbane Bears in the Victorian Football League (VFL).
