Much like fellow Bluebagger Billy Spears, Schunke would play the solitary game for Carlton in his career. He played this game in Season 1901.

Charles Henry Schunke was born at Carlton in 1879 and died in Kew on August 20, 1924 aged 45. He was recruited from Fitzroy Crescent and had previously played for the Carlton Imperials and Phoenix Football Clubs.

His younger brother by 8 years Eddie (Edwin James) was made a life member of the Carlton Football Club in 1943 for his services on the Carlton Recreation Ground Management Committee Club, that managed Princes Park (this was replaced by the Carlton Cricket and Football Social Club in the 1960’s). He was one of the Carlton Cricket Club representatives on that committee and was still a vice president of the cricket club in 1963 and died in 1974 aged 87.
