Scott Pendlebury Australian Rules Footballer
Scott Pendlebury (born 7 January 1988) is a professional Australian rules football player who plays for the Collingwood Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL). Originally from Sale, Pendlebury began his sporting career in basketball and accepted a scholarship to the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra. However, he decided to make a return to competitive football and was selected for the 2005 Under-18 Vic Country team. He played two of the three games, and amassed an average of 17 possessions. He was selected to play for eventual 2005 TAC Cup premiers Gippsland Power. He played 19 games, kicked 11 goals and averaged 22 possessions a game. Collingwood came across Pendlebury after Gippsland Power manager Peter Francis recommended both Pendlebury and his older brother Kristopher. Collingwood drafted Pendlebury with pick five in the 2005 AFL Draft, and Collingwood's number two pick overall, whereas Kris has not played in the AFL. Kris has captained the Collingwood side in the Victorian Football League. Pendlebury has been described as possessing exceptional class and poise.

Collingwood Football Club Australian rules football
The Collingwood Football Club, nicknamed the Magpies, is an Australian rules football club which plays in the Australian Football League (AFL). Formed in 1892, the club traditionally represented the inner-Melbourne suburb of Collingwood, and was based at Victoria Park in that suburb; the club is now based in the Melbourne Sports and Entertainment Precinct in Melbourne, playing its home games at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and with its training and administrative base in Gosch's Paddock and the Westpac Centre. Collingwood is the most supported club in the AFL and the most supported club in any sport in Australia. It has consistently attracted much higher than average crowds to its home games than other clubs in the league, and had a league record of 71,516 members in the 2011 season. This spike in membership registration can mainly be attributed to the winning of the 2010 AFL Premiership. Collingwood's home guernsey consists of black and white stripes, matching the colours of an Australian magpie.
