Aitken, a Blue since 1891, their VFL first captain, and #1 heritage player (on account of alphabetical order) left Carlton after a huge loss to Melbourne in the second match of the 1898 season while still captain. He was dropped due to lack of form and applied for a clearance.
The Fuschias secured his services a few weeks later, and after recovering from a training injury he became the first player in VFL history to turn out for two clubs in the same season. Aitken played just four games for Melbourne before retiring from senior football.
