Season 2008

Collingwood finished its first season in the VFL competition since 2000 with a respectable six wins and 14 losses, leaving them 12th on the ladder. Over the course of the season the list was forced to change with players elevated to the senior list due to good form and the need to fill in holes created by injuries. A credit to coach Gavin Brown and his coaching staff, the VFL side will look to build on the momentum they created throughout the 2008 season.
