FROM seven assistant coaches, five current players and even an AFL club chief executive – the entire 22 players from Geelong's 2009 premiership remain in football.

Ahead of Saturday night's date with St Kilda – the club the Cats defeated to triumph 10 years ago – find out what the premiership team is up to 10 years ago.

Gary Ablett: In the middle of an impressive 18th season, his second back at Geelong after seven years at Gold Coast. Has booted 26 goals from his 14 games this year and is vying for a record ninth All Australian blazer.

Jimmy Bartel: One of the busiest men in football, mixing his time between media commitments on Channel 7, 3AW and Macquarie Sports Radio with his role as football director at Greater Western Sydney. Also a part-owner in X-Blades boots. 

Mark Blake: Starring for Winchelsea in the Geelong and District Football League as the most dominant big man in the competition. Booted eight majors in his debut for the club last year.

Shannon Byrnes: Working at Melbourne where he is currently employed as the player development manager, the same club where he finished his time as a small forward.

Paul Chapman: Coaching Greenvale in the Essendon and District Football League. Leading former AFL-listed players including Addam Maric, Courtenay Dempsey and Fabian Deluca.

Joel Corey: Still sporting the beard he had as a player, Corey is the stoppages and set plays coach at the Western Bulldogs and part of the coaching structure that brought down the Cats last week.

Corey Enright: A six-time All Australian and triple premiership defender, Enright is now responsible for the Cats forward line, including teaching flag teammate Tom Hawkins.

Tom Harley: Stepping straight out of the game into football administration, Harley is now chief executive at Sydney and, coincidentally, former teammate Steve Johnson's boss.

Tom Hawkins: After two crucial goals in the decider against St Kilda – one that brushed the right goalpost – Hawkins remains the spearhead of the Geelong forward line.

Steve Johnson: The man in charge of Lance Franklin as Sydney's forward line coach. Seen as a senior coach for the future should he wish to pursue it.

James Kelly: Still living in Geelong and makes the daily commute to Tullamarine where he is a performance coach focusing on development at Essendon – the club where he finished his playing career.

Cameron Ling: A key player in the media industry, the premiership captain is an expert on Channel 7 and 3AW. Also hosts a weekly podcast on the club's website.

Andrew Mackie: Wheeling and dealing in Geelong's list management team alongside Stephen Wells – the man who called his name out on draft day 17 years ago. Also lends a hand during main training sessions on the track.

Darren Milburn: Assistant coach at Geelong and District Football League club Bannockburn alongside former Cat Peter Riccardi. The 42-year-old has even been spotted playing the odd reserves match.

Cameron Mooney: Busy in the media working for Fox Footy and K rock when he's not winning local basketball titles alongside close friend Mathew Stokes.

Brad Ottens: Splits time between building furniture and working with Geelong's ruckmen, spending 1-2 days a week at GMHBA Stadium. Also on the bench for matches in Victoria.

Max Rooke: Into his third season at Melbourne and was moved from forwards coach to development coach during the club's mid-season restructure.

Matthew Scarlett: Assistant coach and in charge of the 'Misfits', Geelong's collection of defenders who all come from different walks of life.

Joel Selwood: After taking the reins as skipper in 2012, has now captained a club record 175 games and has a contract until at least the end of 2021.

Harry Taylor: Reached the 250-game milestone against Port Adelaide in round 14 and has earnt his spot back in Geelong's best 22 after last year's campaign was ruined through injury.

Travis Varcoe: Into his fifth season at Collingwood. Pushing to become the fourth consecutive former Cat to win a flag after Josh Caddy (Richmond), Joel Hamling (Western Bulldogs) and Nathan Vardy (West Coast).

David Wojcinski: 21 years after playing for Vic Country in the 1998 National Championships, the speedster joined the team as assistant coach in this year's NAB AFL Under 18 Championships.
