Eric Cochran (18 June 1890 – 12 April 1969) was an Australian rules footballer who played with Carlton in the Victorian Football League (VFL).[1] Born in Ballarat and recruited from Golden Point,[2] he played nine consecutive matches during the later part of the 1912 season, all of which Carlton won. His last game was a semi-final against Geelong; he did not play the following week, when Carlton lost to Essendon in the preliminary final.[3] Cochran holds the record for the most VFL/AFL career games without playing in a losing team.[4]
