After playing briefly with Collingwood in 1918, Stan McKenzie crossed to North Melbourne in the VFA, where he remained for the next two seasons. In 1921 he moved to Hawthorn where he became a stalwart of that club's final half a dozen seasons in the Association, winning its premier individual award (then known as the Most Consistent Player Trophy) in 1922.

McKenzie's last year, 1925, coincided with the Mayblooms' elevation to league status, and he added a further 17 VFL games to the nine he had managed with the Woods. An extremely talented, hard to beat half back, he was regarded down Glenferrie way as an out and out champion, and in 1925 he became the first ever Hawthorn player to gain selection for the VFL. He later coached Auburn.
