Colin played most of his football in Melbourne and moved to Western Australia at an early age to try his luck in the WAFL. We believe that when selecting representation in the football arena experience, reputation and honesty are the key factors and Colin Young excels in all three.

EVENT AND DESIGN MANAGER
I ﬁrst met Colin at the Fremantle Football Club where he worked as the marketing and sales manager for the club. Colin also assisted with the football department by way of helping players meet with both leaders of the business sector and companies that were involved on the football industry.
Watching Colin ﬁrst hand in this ﬁeld impressed me greatly and when he mentioned that he was venturing into the player management industry I was very keen to get involved. Colin came to our family home and presented his vision on how he would manage my career in the AFL and ensure my goals were met both on and off the ﬁeld.
If you get time, you should ask Colin to show you what his plans were for me and how he achieved them for me. Colin’s strengths lie in his honesty and his ability to do what he say he will do, and furthermore, he puts everything in writing.
I’ve been with associated with Colin for almost 12 years. In this time we have built a close relationship which has helped me to settle and build a life in Melbourne. I moved from Perth to Melbourne as an 18 yr old, and Colin was always available whenever I needed to contact him. He organised a car for me in Melbourne and the furniture required in my new house. He has also secured a 2 year deal with the Kangaroos for me.
Colin’s communication is fantastic we meet once every 4-6 weeks to catch up and review how I am going during these one on one sessions we decide on anything we need to work on. In addition to the frequent meetings Colin calls once a week on the phone to see how I am playing and to update him on the things that we are working on. I believe Colin’s greatest asset is that he is not only interested about what goes on the footy ﬁeld, he also works to build your life outside of AFL. In my time he has helped me secure an apartment, shares and other assets.
He has set me up with a Financial planner and accountant, in order to ensure my ﬁnancial security. Colin has not only been a great manager but also a mentor
and close friend.
Fremantle Football Club
“Looking back on the year I believe you benefit from signing early with Andrew and Colin as I had a number of emails, calls and messages from part time managers, interstate managers and media trying to speak with me and organise catch ups. Once I signed all the pressure was gone and I could just focus on my footy.”
Brisbane Lions Football Club
“Andrew assisted my family and put a lot of time and support into mentoring me on how to be prepared for the State Carnival, Draft Camp and Draft Day. The support and guidance over the year towards my family and I was a huge benefit with being ready for the AFL.”
