Marco Zanon was a tall ruckman who was earmarked as a young kid with a bright future for the Blues after now being recruited from the now defunct NMFL. He seemed to be on the Carlton list for 'years', as an outstanding junior he was a regular state representative, including the 1980 Caltex Victorian Championships and Teal Cup (refer to articles below from the 1980 Season).
Unfortunately this did not lead him to becoming a senior player with the Blues, he was tall and thin and could never seem to bulk up. After he and Carlton parted ways he headed to VFA club Coburg.
In 1983 Marco Zanon would head to Coburg in the VFA where he played 121 games and kicked 32 goals which in anyone's language was a very good career with the Lions.
Zanon was originally recruited from Newland Colts.
He did not manage a senior game for Carlton.
