In just his second AFL season last year, he finished fifth in Melbourne’s best and fairest and represented Australia in the 2011 International Rules Series. In just two seasons, Trengove had displayed outstanding leadership characteristics, which saw him elevated to Co-Captain of the Melbourne Football Club. Trengove entered the record books as the youngest ever full-time VFL/AFL captain. He was only 20 years old for 211 days. Trengove played just two games 2014 before requiring surgery to repair a navicular injury in his left foot. He had another operation in October 2014 to remove screws and have a bone graft, virtually ruining 2015 as well. Jack returned to senior football in 2016 playing 3 games in what was a positive sign for Trengove’s future.
