Past Player of the Week

Jimmy Aitken - Blue #1

James Munroe ‘Jimmy’ Aitken, born in Sebastopol, was captain of the first team to represent the Carlton Football Club in VFL competition, and is therefore recognised as Player Number One in the long and varied list of individuals to have worn the Navy Blue. Sadly, there is much we do not know about him, apart from the bare facts of his playing career, and his seemingly acrimonious defection to Melbourne in just his second season.

When Carlton joined seven other dissident VFA clubs and formed the Victorian Football League in 1897, Jimmy Aitken was already an established star at Princes Park (Carlton Vice Captain in 1896), so it didn’t surprise when the hard-working centreman replaced incumbent Tom Blake as captain. Defender Ernie Walton was appointed vice-captain, while Blake played on as the team’s senior ruckman.
