The late-career revival of Jake Melksham was one of the feel-good storylines of the 2023 season. Melksham grabbed his opportunity with both hands after spending two months adrift in the VFL. In a five-game purple patch of form from Round 16, Melksham booted 11 goals including a set shot with less than a minute on the clock to deliver the Demons a hard-earned four points against Brisbane. The 32-year-old tragically tore his ACL on the eve of finals and was moved to the club’s rookie list at the end of the season to complete his rehabilitation.
