Pre-VFL Players

In June 1897 it's suggested that McCulloch played under an assumed name at some point. He might have been the "Williams" who played in Melbourne's Round 1 1897 and Round 2 1897 sides.

In 1900 he was said to have missed a year and returned when official records show he played in 1899.
