Biography

Alistair Lynch made his senior debut at Wynyard and was drafted Hobart at No.50 in the very first AFL National Draft in 1986. He played 120 games with Fitzroy (1988-1993) and 186 games with Brisbane Bears/Lions (1994-2004).

Alastair Lynch will be remembered as one of the all-time greats of AFL football after a career which spanned 17 years and 306 games at the highest level. He was a former captain and key member of the history making Brisbane Lions team that won a premiership hat-trick in 2001-02-03 to be rated arguably the best team of all-time. But his career, which had its beginnings in Tasmania and was split between Fitzroy and the Brisbane Bears/Lions, went beyond pure football. He defied a career-threatening illness in 1995, later diagnosed as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, to become an inspiration to the thousands of CFS sufferers in Australia. Not only did he get back to playing football at the elite level after missing all but one game in 1995 but he took his game to a new level and played some of his best football as the oldest player in the competition in his latter years.
