Esmond "Tommy" McConville was recommended to Melbourne by Percy Wilson but due to his job as a teacher it took two seasons to convince him to travel to the city. The closest they got until 1927 was a quarter of a 1926 practice match. When they did lure him to the MCG, Melbourne got a solid goalkicking rover/forward, who provided good service over three seasons.
He played for a VFL representative side against the Wimmera League in 1927.
