At a glance this is some of what Sheldon has achieved.
Ken Sheldon played 132 games and kicked 170 goals with Carlton before moving to St Kilda where he played a further 53 games and kicked 24 goals. In 1979 Ken kicked 53 goals and was Carlton’s leading goalkicking. That same year Ken kicked one of the VFL/AFL Grand Finals most famous goals after receiving the ball from the sliding Wayne Harmes kicking the winning goal to give the Blues a premiership win over Collingwood. Sheldon also played in the Blues' 1981 and 1982 premiership sides.
After his playing career finished at St Kilda, Sheldon became their coach in 1990. The 1991 season saw him lead the Saints to their first AFL Finals Series since 1973 and he was credited with turning the fortunes of the club which again made the finals in 1992.
As well as coaching at the elite level Ken has coached at State Level with South Adelaide and at community level with the Echuca FNC.
