Lindsay Gilbee Biography

Wednesday, 1 August 2018
Simon McPhee (senior midfield assistant), Rohan Welsh (senior forward assistant) and Lindsay Gilbee (defensive assistant) have been released by St Kilda and will not be at the club in 2019.
Friday, 15 September 2017
St Kilda reshuffles its coaching team around Alan Richardson with assistant Aaron Hamill moving to VFL affiliate Sandringham.

Hamill will replace Lindsay Gilbee as the Zebras' senior coach in 2018, with Gilbee to remain at the Saints in a development role.

"Itís really important for our coaches to have new challenges and opportunities to diversify their skills," Saints football manager Jamie Cox said.

"Lindsay did a fantastic job at Sandringham this season, with a number of our players recapturing form with the Zebras before returning to play a vital role in the senior side.

"Aaron has also been a vital part of our group, looking after the forwards at AFL level and will now have responsibility of overseeing his own team in 2018."

Despite months of practice, former Bulldog Lindsay Gilbee has decided not to pursue an NFL punting career.

"It gets a bit annoying when people think you can just go over there and do it, and make a seamless transition from AFL to NFL," Gilbee said.

"But people don't understand how bloody hard it is. You can't just pick up a (gridiron) ball and start kicking it like an NFL punter. You need to dedicate a lot of time to it. It's probably no different to a golfer in terms of how often they practise their swing and refine it.

Monday, 7 May 2012
Bulldog Lindsay Gilbee will consider continuing his career at another club if he is not re-contracted.

"I'm a big believer [that] the clubs don't owe you anything when you finish," he said.

"It's been a privilege to play for my footy club for so long and we get paid well Ö so I'm not one of those players who would be upset at the end of the year if the club was to say, 'Listen, let's part ways.'

"I'm open to that [but] I'd love to keep playing."

Wednesday, 11 April 2012
The Western Bulldogs have lost Lindsay Gilbee for up to a month after the veteran tore a medial ligament.

"It's a bit disappointing but he'll be back in the rehab [group] for a while and he'll be OK once we get [him] up and going," Bulldogs medical service manager Andrew McKenzie said.

"We'll see how he goes over the week and we'll know more once [the injury has] settled down."

Sunday, 15 May 2011
Rodney Eade took a gamble by playing Lindsay Gilbee as a forward and the veteran returned a career-best six-goal performance in the big win over Richmond.

"I kicked the first two and got the message 'stay forward'," said Gilbee.

"It's good to play up forward and instead of chasing backsides they got to chase my backside a bit. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was just good to have a win and get the mood up around the place."

Friday, 10 July 2009
Western Bulldog Lindsay Gilbee is determined to put two weeks of personal anguish behind him tonight to honour his seriously ill father.

As Gilbee runs out to confront Collingwood at Etihad Stadium, his father Lawrie will be watching from Box Hill Hospital, where he is battling an aggressive form of leukaemia.

"Dad was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia - and I heard some other bad news that came with it as well," Gilbee said.

"Hopefully, he's on the road to recovery, but we only take it one day at a time. We don't look at weeks ahead at the moment."

Gilbee has made it a point to acknowledge his father by using hand gestures after kicking goals in his past two matches.

"Dad said he got a bit emotional when he saw it on TV," Gilbee said.

"I will do anything to give my dad a little bit of a pep-up, and I will certainly be dedicating the rest of this football season to him."

Wednesday, 24 June 2009
Western Bulldogs defender Lindsay Gilbee is in doubt for Sunday's clash with North Melbourne after reinjuring an ankle at training.

"He got caught in a bit of a tackle. He hurt it again in Darwin, so it has been going on for a few weeks," Bulldogs coach Rodney Eade said.

"There was some doubt on him anyway. It was the first day that he's trained; he didn't train at all last week, so I suppose there is some doubt now."

Western Bulldog Lindsay Gilbee faces an uphill battle to be fit for Sunday's showdown against North Melbourne at the MCG.

Gilbee, who hobbled from Whitten Oval yesterday just before the end of a one-hour training session, has struggled with ankle ligament damage for the past month.

Tuesday, 26 May 2009
Bulldogs utility Lindsay Gilbee will play his 150th game against Sydney in Darwin and has learnt over the past five years the pros and cons of playing home games interstate.

"It's commercial reality and I trust the decision-makers at our club to make the best calls for its survival," he said.

"We played the Swans at Etihad Stadium last year and it was strange having a home game against them at home.

"It hasn't been the best thing for us on the field to go on road and play for premiership points.

"But, as a group, we've become accustomed to it and know footy is such a business, we just get on with it and this week will be no exception.

"We know it's the cold, hard facts and a reality that we must accept."

Saturday, 23 May 2009
A leg injury and an agonising defeat saw Lindsay Gilbee a forlorn figure after the Dogs' loss to the Cats.

"It happened in the first 10 minutes and its very, very sore," Gilbee said.

"It's a leg of some sort; it's the main bone there so we'll find out more tomorrow."

"I was au centre half-forward and I actually thought it went through; I jumped," he said.

"But after that I was on my knees, so it wasn't to be."

Wednesday, 13 May 2009
Western Bulldogs defender Lindsay Gilbee says his side is back in form after a win against Adelaide halted a losing streak of 3 straight losses.

"It was important to get some form back. We hadn't been playing badly but our skill errors had been costing us," Gilbee said.

"We've gone through all the stats and in the three games we lost it was our turnovers that were the only thing hurting us.

"It was something we rectified on the weekend, and it shows if you move the ball well and with good skill, you're going to win most games."

Sunday, 15 February 2009
Lindsay Gilbee has revealed how he turned his back on the chance to become an NFL punter to pursue his AFL premiership dream.
