Alex Silvagni Biography

Tuesday, 21 August 2018
Alex Silvagni announces his retirement from AFL football.

"Deep down I knew my body was not up to returning to the rigours of senior football, so in the end the decision came relatively easily," Silvagni said.

"I've loved my short time at Carlton and I'm incredibly grateful to the entire football club for the belief they've shown me since I arrived."

Monday, 18 June 2018
Alex Silvagni will miss the rest of the 2018 season after rupturing his troublesome Achilles at the weekend.

Silvagni was making his return to footy through the VFL, having not yet made a senior appearance this season due to hamstring and Achilles problems.

However, he was forced from the field in the second quarter, with the club confirming that the 30-year-old requires surgery and that his season is over.

Wednesday, 31 January 2018
Marc Murphy will skipper the Blues for a sixth consecutive season in 2018.

Patrick Cripps and Sam Docherty are Murphy's new deputies in an eight-man leadership group including Kade Simpson, Ed Curnow and fresh faces Matthew Kreuzer, Alex Silvagni and Lachie Plowman.

Monday, 4 September 2017
Alex Silvagni signs a one-year deal with Carlton to play on with the club in 2018.

"This whole 12 months has been fantastic and invigorating for me," Silvagni said.

"Being around such a young group in a different environment is like starting my AFL career again."

Thursday, 20 July 2017
Alex Silvagni will be sidelined for four weeks with bone bruising in his knee.

Silvagni landed awkwardly on his knee against the Bulldogs last week, in his first game back since injuring the same knee early in the Blues' round 13 win over Greater Western Sydney.

Tuesday, 13 June 2017
Alex Silvagni is set to miss up to a month after injuring his knee against Greater Western Sydney.

Silvagni suffered the injury in the first quarter of the Blues' thrilling one-point victory over the Giants and did not take any further part in the match following that incident.

"He just landed on it (his left knee) awkwardly and he's got a bone bruise in that knee joint on the left side," Carlton football manager Andrew McKay said.

"We're still unsure how long he's going to be out but it's probably going to be 3-4 weeks."

Monday, 28 November 2016
Carlton select Alex Silvagni with pick No.23 in the 2016 Rookie Draft.
Wednesday, 26 October 2016
Fremantle delist Alex Silvagni as the Dockers continue their huge list turnover.

Silvagni played 53 games in seven seasons at the Dockers after he was drafted as a mature-age rookie in 2010 from Casey Scorpions in the VFL.

He played 15 games in his debut season in 2010 but never played more than 10 games in any other year as he struggled with injury and opportunity.

He played the last five games in 2016 and delivered some excellent performances, which led the Dockers to think long and hard about retaining him on the list.

Tuesday, 18 August 2015
Alex Silvagni is handed a four-week ban for a high hit on West Coast's Jamie Cripps.

Silvagni - whose case was referred directly to the Tribunal by the Match Review Panel on Monday - pleaded guilty as charged, with his strike graded as high impact and high contact.

In his evidence, Silvagni said Cripps had moved into his path to stop him pursuing his opponent, and he had responded by attempting to "move him out of the way" with a "strong, forceful" bump.

"I didn't mean to strike him in the head," a contrite Silvagni said.

"It didn't sit with me well at the time, during the game or still now. As a footballer I don't like seeing it and I didn't mean to do it.

"I just want to publicly apologise to Jamie for the incident on the weekend. It's not something I stand for.

"I still feel a little ill from it from the weekend. It's definitely not something in my character. I'm deeply remorseful for the incident."

Jamie Cripps could be available for West Coast's clash with the Western Bulldogs after scans cleared him of a fractured jaw.

Cripps copped a nasty elbow from Dockers defender Alex Silvagni in last Sunday's Western Derby and the Eagles feared he might have suffered a fracture as a result.

But scans have cleared Cripps of any structural damage.

West Coast football manager Craig Vozzo told the club's website that Cripps was still suffering headaches from the incident and he would be monitored this week.

"Jamie obviously suffered that pretty nasty knock on the weekend, but going through the x-ray process, it's revealed no break which is terrific news for us and more particularly Jamie," Vozzo said.

"He was dazed a little and he's still having headaches, so he'll be a test later in the week."

Monday, 17 August 2015
Jamie Cripps has a suspected fractured jaw as a result of Docker Alex Silvagni's off-the-ball elbow, but Eagles coach Adam Simpson said he deliberately did not watch a replay of the incident to avoid making comment.

"Crippa's got probably a fractured jaw," Simpson said post-match.

"We wouldn't have put him back on if it was a broken jaw. But there might be a fracture there. He's pretty sore at the moment.

"I deliberately didn't watch it. But I've heard a lot about it."

Wednesday, 23 July 2014
Fremantle extends the contract of Alex Silvagni until the end of the 2016 season.

"The club has shown faith in me, so I'll show faith in the club by sticking around," Silvagni said.

"I love the club, I love everything about it, the players, the coaches, the supporters, they're fantastic and I'm really enjoying being here.

"I've got a bit of unfinished business and I'm looking forward to what we can do with this group."

Monday, 9 September 2013
Alex Silvagni and Tanner Smith sign one-year contract extensions with the Dockers while Matt Taberner has also signed on for a further two years.
Tuesday, 18 September 2012
Fremantle's Alex Silvagni will miss the opening of the 2013 season after pleading guilty to head-butting Adelaide forward Jared Petrenko during Fremantle's semi final against the Crows.
Tuesday, 31 January 2012
Alex Silvagni is hopeful a full and injury-free pre-season will give him the edge required to cement his spot in Fremantle's back six.

"It's just been enjoyable being out on the track and just running around with the boys and not being restrained by injuries," Silvagni said.

"It's such a mental edge as well. You're always being held back when all you want to do is go. It's great to be running around with the guys and I'm really looking forward to starting the season."

Thursday, 25 March 2010
Fremantle rookies Jay van Berlo and Alex Silvagni have been elevated into the senior side along with VFL recruit Michael Barlow ahead of their round one clash against Adelaide.
