Victorian Football Association
Career: 1892

1890 June 14
A player named Buzolich was playing for Essendon District against East Richmond on the Botanical Reserve.

1892 April 16
Buzolich was named in 27 man Carlton squad that played a pre season match against Carlton Juniors on the Brunswick C. G.
This is the only information, so far, of this player.
However, ten years earlier in September 1882, an Antonoio Buzolich, a decorator of Nicholson Street, North Carlton, along with collegue Thomas King Smith of Hoddle St. Prahran, a manufacturing chemist, applied for Letters Patent for an improved composition for paint.
Perhaps a relative?

During WW1 the Winner newspaper reported on a Lt. Douglas Buzolich of Malvern (Vic) who was injured and had to return to Melbourne for family business reasons as his father, the city deputy coroner, had passed away. The report carried a photo of him, and also mentioned he had two brothers at the front.
Any relation?
