Despite having finished with a better record than their 1957 and 1959 premiership years, the Demons 14-4 was only good enough for third place in 1962. They led by 14 points at the last change against Carlton in the minor semi final - the first they had played in sice 1954 - but were run down in the last quarter and lost by two points.

Dennis Jones was runner-up in the Gardiner Medal for best and fairest player in the Reserves.

The Fourths lost Grand Final to Hawthorn in the Melbourne Boys League 11.10 to 8.8

The club made a profit of 328p for the year. An end of season trip was held to New Zealand.

Melbourne's VFL delegates were Tom Trumble and Richard Taylor. Taylor took a leave of absence from 16 March until his death on 25 May and was replaced by Jim Cardwell. Arthur King then took over as delegate from 22 June.
