Trengove has joined the Port Adelaide Football Club ahead of the 2018 season. Jack is a hard-working midfielder who provides great depth and versatility in his role, proving great in the air and in front of goals also. Jack was the no. 2 draft selection, picked by Melbourne during the 2009 AFL Draft.

In his debut season in 2010, Trengove played 18 games for the club, proving his worth as he came 4th in the NAB AFL Rising Star. Jack continued his run of form into the 2011 season, where he finished fifth in Melbourne’s best and fairest and further, 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 and 211 days of age. 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.

After only playing a further 2 games in 2017, collectively 5 games across the two seasons, Jack was delisted by the Melbourne Football Club. However, Jack was soon recruited by Port Adelaide, where he managed three senior games after dominating the SANFL throughout the first half of the year. Trengoves efforts were rewarded with a one year contract extension which will see him at the club until the end of 2019.
