Since sponsoring Paul Licuria in 2003, Collingwood NSW has been proud to have sponsored a Collingwood player every year there after. From champions like Licca to fringe players like Tom Young, they’ve always been generous with their time and we thank all of them for the efforts whilst being linked to Collingwood NSW.

Paul Licuria

Paul Licuria was the first player to be sponsored by Collingwood NSW, and he was always willing to give the club his time at every opportunity. A two time Copeland Trophy winner, Licca played 182 games for Collingwood over 9 seasons, and will always be considered a legend for his contribution to the Collingwood NSW cause in the early SCSC days when the club was starting up and finding its feet.

Marty Clarke

Marty Clarke was something of a phenomenon when he arrived at Collingwood with pick 40 in the 2006 Rookie Draft, and was a popular choice to be the CNSW sponsored player to follow Paul Licuria after he retired at the end of 2007. CNSW sponsored Marty for two seasons before he returned home to Northern Ireland at the end of 2009, although he was followed with more than a passing interest in the Premier State when he returned to Collingwood for a second crack at the AFL in 2012.

Josh Daicos

The son of Collingwood champion Peter Daicos was selected with pick no.57 in the 2016 National Draft draft as a father-son selection. Josh’s untapped potential came to fruition after building a solid resume playing for the Oakleigh Chargers in the TAC Cup, and then for Vic Metro in the 2016 National Championships. Josh made his senior debut as a Magpie at the MCG in round 22 of 2017 in front of 47,889 against Geelong after being an emergency the week before, much to the delight of the dedicated supporters who marvelled at his father’s skills years prior. Collingwood NSW sponsored Josh in 2017 and 2018 and will continue sponsoring Josh in season 2019
