Thayer Tutt 1988
Captain of Australia 1989

BORN IN CANADA IN 1960, he was originally recruited by Max Wildman and Otto Wolf for the Demons club in the Victorian league in 1980. When the club's A-grade team could not make up the numbers at the start of that year, it was suspended and he was 'loaned' to the Monarchs for a season, never to return. He played 216 senior games in the Victorian league, mostly with the Monarchs and Monarch-Saints clubs between 1981 and 1991.

He won the coveted President's Medal three times in a row — 1983, 1984 and 1985. He won 7 state premierships with the Monarch-Saints in 1983, 1986-88, 1990 (as coach) and 1991; one in 1996 with the Saints as trainer; one with Russell Athletic in 2000; one with the Marauders (OiHAN) in 2002; and another with the Braves in 2009. He also played for the Chargers and the Melbourne Jets in the Super League of the early-1980s and competed in Slapshot 83.

At the age of 22, he was the first ever coach of the National Junior Team (U20) with Glen Williamson of Sydney, touring Europe for a fortnight and competing in Bucharest, Romania in early-1983. He was an assistant playing coach in the 1987 D-Pool Worlds in Perth scoring an average of 7 points a game! On 21 goals 21 assists, he was top goal scorer and equal top on points with Charlie Cooper. In 1988, he represented Australia at the Thayer Tutt tournament, an alternate Olympic competition, in Eindhoven near Amsterdam. In 1989, he was captain of Australia in the C-Pool Worlds in Sydney. Like many champions of the Australian game, he never hung up his skates. Scott Davidson still plays for the Melbourne Nite Owls.
