About Alastair Lynch

  • Alastair Graeme Lynch (born 19 June 1968) is a former professional Australian rules footballer who played in the Australian Football League (AFL).
  • He is best known as a three-time premiership full-forward for the Brisbane Lions. The Tasmanian began his career in defence, where he became a club champion and leading goal-kicker for Fitzroy.
  • He represented his home state at the elite level, and at the peak of his career in 1993 he was acknowledged as one of the league's best with All-Australian status.
  • However, he left a financially struggling Fitzroy to become a prize recruit for a new-look Brisbane Bears after the club's move from the Gold Coast.
  • With the merger of his former club Fitzroy and new club Brisbane, Lynch rejoined with former teammates and became club captain. A long battle with chronic fatigue syndrome threatened his career; however, after many years in absence, Lynch's return to form at a relatively late age in his career was hailed by the football community, and he became part of Brisbane Lions' celebrated premiership winning formula. Lynch is a Tasmanian football legend, a favourite son at both Fitzroy and Brisbane clubs, and holds the record for the most combined goals for the merged entity and one of the last remaining former Fitzroy players to play in the AFL.
