The Journey | S2E7 Season 2 | Episode 7. In the final episode of Season 2 of The Journey, go behind-the-scenes as Carlton wrap up the 2017 season.

IF you’re under any illusions as to how vociferously Brent Stanton’s family supported Carlton, ponder the christian name they gave this football club’s recently appointed development coach on the day of his birth on the first day of May back in 1986.

“I know I was named after Brent Crosswell. That’s how far back the connection goes,” Stanton said this week.

“I’ve never met Brent and I’ve only seen highlights of him, but gee he was an impressive player. Hopefully one day I get to meet him.”

As Stanton’s parents and his brother and sisters were all true Blue, there was never any doubt his childhood allegiances would be channelled towards the club for whom Crosswell so spectacularly turned out. As he said: “I was a Carlton supporter as a...

Rare photo brings focus to Blues tragedy

4214349 rare-photo-brings-focus-to-blues-tragedy

AFTER 120 years, the Carlton Football Club, with the assistance of Melbourne Grammar School, has sourced its first image of the ruck-rover William ‘Brickie’ Woodhouse, a member of this club’s inaugural senior League team of 1897. 

Of the 20 Carlton players who took to the field to herald the commencement of the fledgling VFL season, Woodhouse is the seventh whose photograph now finds a home in the archive. 

Woodhouse followed the then Carlton captain Jimmy Aitken down the race and onto Brunswick Street Oval for the opening round match with Fitzroy on the afternoon of Saturday, May 8, 1897.

Regrettably, this story also carries a tragic post-script, but more of that later.

William Theodore Woodhouse was born in East St Kilda on September 14, 1873. He made an early impression as a student at Melbourne Grammar, where it was said his sporting achievements overshadowed his academic...
