Old Scotch

The first great Old Scotch Collegians side was captained by one of the club’s founders, ‘Cocky’ Heatley, a centreman who was said to combine considerable all round football ability with mastery in the art of ‘staging’ for free kicks. Under Heatley, Old Scotch went top in 1923 and 1924, with Alan Staley stamping himself as the MAFA’s best ruckman of the period, the McLorinan brothers marshalling a watertight defence, and the likes of Gordon Law, Harold Staley and Clive Fergie (ex-Fitzroy) giving the side unmatched strength through the middle.
