Beginnings: The Collingwood Football Club was born on the cusp of one of the world's worst depressions in February 1892. Collingwood played its first game in the Victorian Football Association (VFA), the premier football competition at the time, against Carlton Football Club on 7 May 1892. The club won the VFA Premiership in 1896.

Pre-season setback for Elliott

Collingwood forward Jamie Elliott will require ankle surgery that is expected to keep him from full training until the New Year.

The decision to operate was made after Elliott presented at training today with continuing soreness in his left ankle. A subsequent scan confirmed the need for surgery.

Collingwood Director of Football, Geoff Walsh, explained that further rest was unlikely to allow the 25 year-old two-time Gordon Coventry Award winner to properly prepare for the 2018 season.

“The injury was one Jamie played with late this year. The recommendation post-season was that with a spell from the rigours of playing and training the ankle would heal. Unfortunately the healing process has been slower than expected and surgery is now appropriate,” Walsh said.

“We’re expecting to have Jamie back...

Pendlebury's International Rules injury 'minor'

Collingwood captain Scott Pendlebury says the finger injury that sent him to hospital for scans is "only minor", allaying fears of a significant setback to his pre-season.

Pendlebury sat out the second half of Australia's win over Ireland in the first Test of the Virgin Australia International Rules Series after suffering a finger injury to his left hand. 

But the news wasn't so good for Gold Coast and Ireland midfielder Pearce Hanley, who is nursing a broken hand in a costly aftermath to Ireland's 10-point loss at Adelaide Oval.

It was Pendlebury's first game since he broke the middle finger on his right hand against the Suns in round 17 this year, forcing him to undergo surgery and miss the rest of the season.

However, a relieved Magpie skipper confirmed...

Players tested in gruelling time trial

The November sun was beating down as Collingwood's first-to-fourth year players hit the Holden Centre Oval on Monday morning. 

Greeting them was a 2km time trial, the true test of pre-season fitness. 

Shirts quickly disappeared and stopwatches were at the ready. 

And of course Tom Phillips set the pace.

As the group spread and the player's breathing became louder, the third-year midfielder was joined at the front by Josh Smith. James Aish followed, while Brayden Maynard and Rupert Wills fought their own battle not far behind. 

Phillips won narrowly, despite Queenslander Smith quickly closing in the final steps. Aish completed the trifecta, with Wills and Maynard not far behind.

Over 100 woman ran, leapt, kicked, marked and handballed their way through a two and a half hour testing session at the Holden Centre on Saturday morning.

Their goal?

A place on Collingwood’s inaugural VFL Women’s list for season 2018.

With only months until the beginning of the new competition, Women’s Football Operations Manager Mathew James told Collingwood Media the process of choosing between 18 and 25 new players has begun in earnest.

“With the introduction of the VFLW team, we’re going to have 22 AFLW listed players who we will be allowed to retain,” James explained.

Collingwood's 2018 campaign began in earnest when its crop of youngsters - and a handful of senior teammates - returned for the pre-season on Wednesday morning.

All players with between one and four years of senior experience were required to attend, while captain Scott Pendlebury and prime movers Taylor Adams and Adam Treloar made sure they weren't light on for pre-season experience.

There was certainly a hint of something new in the Holden Centre corridors:

Cox happy with his big decision

Save these dates in 2018 Watch Collingwood's 2018 home and away fixture with each game quickly recapped in one video.

Mason Cox admits he had thought long and hard about the opportunities available to him at Collingwood before signing a three-year deal in September with the club.

American Cox played 10 games last season in the VFL, with Brodie Grundy preferred as the Magpies' senior ruckman.

As rival clubs circled, the 26-year-old sought conversations with coach Nathan Buckley, President Eddie McGuire and captain Scott Pendlebury that reassured him he was capable of forming an effective tandem with Grundy.

"Opportunity always plays into it – obviously you want to play AFL every single week," Cox told reporters on Wednesday when first-to-fourth-year players started pre-season training.

"I've had long chats with Bucks, the president and Pendles, plenty of people at the club. There...

Outlining our pre-season program

Day one: Players vs 'the hill' Collingwood's young players returned to training on Wednesday. Watch as Stength and Conditioning Manager Kevin White discusses the challenges of day one.

It was only day one, but the footys were zipping around Olympic Park Oval on Wednesday.

Collingwood young players were back at training, bringing with them enthusiasm and energy of a group ready to welcome a new campaign.

And while pre-season training is often coupled with gruelling time trials and hard running, the Magpies will this year place a heavier focus on ball skills in the pre-Christmas training block.

“The plan for this week is to get the boys kicked in,” the club’s new Strength and Conditioning manager Kevin White told Collingwood Media.

“All of the players had conditioning programs in the off-season, but probably haven’t had a high level of kicking. That’s why you see the footy’s out on day...

Collingwood's Darwin Diaries

Last week, Collingwood coaches and staff spent four days unlike any other in their working lives.

They travelled to the Northern Territory in separate groups to meet in Darwin to support a group of 25 12-to-14-year-old members of the club’s Next Generation Academy in the Michael Long Cup.

The team is known as the Barkly Magpies, named after the Region zoned to Collingwood under the AFL’s new program that helps develop Indigenous and multicultural youngsters on their footballing journey.

Each night, a different member of the travelling party logged their experiences and reflections. Some travelled by plane, others by bus. All returned to the Holden Centre with memories that will last a lifetime, and a hunger to see the club’s Next Generation Academy and its players grow from strength to strength in the years to come.
