Where Are They Now? – Mick Constable

The Old Haileybury Football Club President Mick Constable was equally good on the field as he is off. Between 1985 and 1999 Mick played 167 games for the club having come up through the Under 19’s. Mick was a courageous backman who unfailingly committed himself to every contest. “Cunners” unfortunately missed out on the 1989 C Grade Premiership after he ruptured his spleen due to his courageous playing style. However, he more than made up for this in the following year’s final series where he was a member of the 1990 1st Premiership Team and then again in 1995. Mick was an outstanding one-one-one player with strong hands overhead and reliably held up the back six across many years. His talents were recognised around the league when he was granted the opportunity to represent the “Big V” in 1988. In the following years “Cunners” was elected deputy vice-captain of the senior team fin 1989 and 1990.

Upon his retirement in 1999 Mick continued to assist around the club where needed from boundary umpire to and anything else needed along the way, as he still does today. His first official role was in 1992 when he joined the club committee. An all round good bloke that puts considerable amount of time in behind the scenes to ensure the club runs faultlessly.

As mentioned Mick is currently the President of the Old Haileybury Football Club. Mick has two sons, his eldest Joel currently plays at the club and Charlie plays for Geelong in the AFL. Mick’s wife Nicky has been a helpful hand on game-day ensuring our club puts up VAFA’s best after-game spread and coordinating many luncheons. Today, Mick is the CFO of Millennium Services Group (ASX: MIL) which is a cleaning, security and integrated service specialist in the retail shopping centre, commercial property and Commonwealth and State Government sectors.
