2010 premiership captain Nick Maxwell celebrates with the cup

COLLINGWOOD premiership captain Nick Maxwell and fan favourite Alan Didak have been made life members of the Magpies at the club's annual general meeting on Tuesday night. 

Maxwell played 208 games for the Magpies after being recruited via the rookie list, was an All Australian in 2009 and held the 2010 premiership cup aloft the following season.

Didak played 218 games, winning a best and fairest in 2006 on his way to becoming a premiership player. He was known for his freakish skills.

The duo were inducted alongside Heloise Pratt, Collingwood's first female life member, and club stalwart Eddie Hillgrove. 

Pratt has been the force behind many of Collingwood's community projects while Hillgrove has been at the club for 35 years and was team manager when the Magpies won their historic 1990 flag. 

Collingwood also honoured departing board member Dr Jack Kennedy, naming him as an official patron and gave special service awards to Tracey O'Connor, executive assistant in the Magpies' football department.

The club also recognised two fan based websites, Nick's Collingwood Page and Extreme Black 'n' White. 

Eddie McGuire was elected president for another year, with Mark Korda becoming joint vice-president alongside Alex Waislitz.

Collingwood also officially welcomed Christine Holgate to the seven-member board.
