BLUESEUM - History of the Carlton Football Club (Cached)


PLAYER OF THE WEEK - Jack Greenhill!

An honest and reliable defender from Corryong, Jack Greenhill had a relatively short senior career at Carlton – a career that was interrupted, and eventually halted, by the demands of running his family’s dairy farm during the period immediately after World War 1. Included in his 41 senior appearances was one season as vice-captain of the Blues, and five games in finals.

After playing six matches as a 19 year-old in his debut season of 1917, Jack was released by Carlton and went back to help out at the family farm. In the last year of World War 1, the demand for fresh meat, milk and produce was at an all-time high. Jack simply couldn’t be spared to chase a football around the playing fields of Melbourne..

The Blueseum is looking for some additional help in 2021 and beyond – particularly with Game and Player Reviews. Open tasks are on the Task List.

Since 2006, this website has been produced by a dedicated group of volunteers who spend their free time delving into and recording the history of the Carlton Football Club. The site is based on the wiki concept (think of wikipedia) where registered users are able to create and edit content independently.

Therefore, everyone interested is cordially invited to join us. No experience is necessary, because you’ll be guided every step of the way and you will be making a real contribution to your club.
