Scott Lycett Biography

Monday, 30 October 2023
Scott Lycett indicates to Port Adelaide that he intends to retire, amid interest from Victorian sides.

"Scott has been an outstanding contributor for two clubs across his 146 games, including as a premiership player at West Coast," Port coach Ken Hinkley said.

"He was an incredible workhorse for our club during the last five seasons and was totally focused on putting his teammates first. As a former Port Adelaide junior, Scott was Port Adelaide through and through and we thank him for his passion and commitment to our club."

Monday, 30 January 2023
After managing just 4 games in 2022, Scott Lycett says his reconstructed shoulders are again ready to carry an AFL load in 2023.

"It's just good to be back on the park and actually kicking the footy around. So I am really looking forward to getting back out there. I had a good off-season and good pre-season and games are just around the corner," Lycett said.

Friday, 15 April 2022
Scott Lycett requires surgery for a dislocated shoulder and is set to miss approximately three months of footy.

Lycett left the field during round four, clutching his shoulder after a seemingly innocuous ruck contest.

Wednesday, 15 July 2020
Scott Lycett will play in his 100th AFL game this week against Carlton.

"It's (playing 100 games) something that's pretty special to me and my family," Lycett said.

"I came from a small country town on the west coast of South Australia, the middle of nowhere pretty much in Smoky Bay.

"I'm stoked that I got to triple figures and hopefully I can keep building. Hopefully, I'll get to 200 (games) one day."

Wednesday, 17 April 2019
Port Adelaide ruckman Scott Lycett will return to Optus Stadium this week for the first time since winning the flag with West Coast in 2018.

"It will be a bit of a weird feeling having played there for a lot of years," Lycett said.

"I'm not sure whether they (the supporters) will boo or cheer, but everyone who pays for a ticket has a right to cheer or boo or do whatever they want to do, so I guess I'll just cop whatever comes.

"If they do want to boo, there's no hard feelings. I've got a lot of love for the people over there."

Tuesday, 9 October 2018
Scott Lycett is officially a Port Adelaide player after West Coast chose not to match the Power's big contract offer for the 26-year-old.

"I had eight great seasons with the Eagles and won a premiership, and the club has been fantastic to me and my family," Lycett said.

"I can't thank West Coast enough for making me a better player and person.

"But I am excited to be coming home to South Australia and to the club that I supported since my childhood.

"I can’t wait to get back to Adelaide and want to help the Power achieve some success."

Monday, 8 October 2018
West Coast hasn't ruled out matching Port Adelaide's five-year, $3m offer to restricted free agent Scott Lycett.

"Obviously we need a ruckman, so it's certainly something we need to consider," Eagles football manager Craig Vozzo said.

He believed the 26-year-old would be comfortable staying in the west, if the Eagles matched the deal.

"I think he's been obviously really happy at our club for eight years and having just experienced a Grand Final is in a really good space," Vozzo said.

"I don't think it would be the end of the world for him."

Saturday, 6 October 2018
Port Adelaide officially lodges paperwork to secure West Coast premiership ruckman Scott Lycett on a five-year, $3million deal.
Friday, 31 August 2018
Jordan Roughead jets into Perth to meet with West Coast.

Accompanied by manager Bruce Kaider, the restricted free agent will discuss the prospect of filling the void left by injured Eagles ruckman Nic Naitanui.

With increasing concern ruckman Scott Lycett will accept a lucrative offer to join Port Adelaide over St Kilda, the Eagles have moved to contingency plans.

Wednesday, 16 May 2018
Nic Naitanui says he wants out-of-contract teammate and fellow ruckman Scott Lycett to stay at West Coast.

"I just told him there's not much back in Adelaide for him and to stay at West Coast," Naitanui said of the South Australian.

"He's playing good footy, he lives near the beach, he's loving it. He's out of contract at the end of this year, there's him and a host of some other big names as well, hopefully they stay around."

Monday, 26 February 2018
Scott Lycett says he is ready for a big 2018 season after coming off a tough 2017 season ruined by shoulder issues.

"It was tough (last year), but I think I'm in a better place now for it," he said.

"A lot of players go through injuries – they just probably don't have two reconstructions (PCL and shoulder) in a row – but I'm definitely in good stead for it now and after a full pre-season ready to launch into 2018."

Tuesday, 1 August 2017
Scott Lycett's season is over after he required more surgery on his troublesome shoulder.

"We've decided that we just can't get him to the level where we can get a consistent lot of training and pain-free outcomes," Eagles football manager Craig Vozzo said.

"It got to the point where we've decided to take our medicine … have it operated on again and get it done so he doesn't miss any of his pre-season.

"Unfortunately, that means he won’t be able to play again this season."

Monday, 5 June 2017
Scott Lycett hasn't ruled himself out of contention for the Eagles' looming crunch match against Geelong after getting through his comeback game from a dislocated shoulder unscathed.

In a successful first appearance after undergoing surgery in March, Lycett played about 75 per cent game time in East Perth's thumping 46-point WAFL win over arch-rival West Perth.

"I think I've made that mistake in the past where I've said I'm ready and it hasn't quite worked out," Lycett said.

"I'll play my cards close to my chest now and leave that up to the coaches – that's their job – I've just got to play footy."

Tuesday, 21 March 2017
Winged West Coast ruckmen Nic Naitanui and Scott Lycett have been placed on the long-term injury list, paving the way for rookie-listed big man Drew Petrie to face former club North Melbourne.
Tuesday, 14 March 2017
Scott Lycett will have latarjet surgery on his dislocated left shoulder and is likely to be sidelined for up to three months.

Lycett suffered the injury to his left shoulder in his comeback game playing for East Perth in a WAFL practice match.

"He's going to require surgery. There was a dislocation, which has caused some bone damage," West Coast football manager Craig Vozzo said.

"The extent of the damage was such that we're not going to take the risk on a conservative treatment.

"Our doctors are recommending that we go down the path of latarjet surgery, so that will take place early next week."

Saturday, 11 March 2017
Scott Lycett's hopes of playing in round one appear all but over after injuring his left shoulder playing in a WAFL practice match.

Making his return after a PCL reconstruction at the end of last season, Lycett dislocated his left shoulder laying a tackle in a practice match against East Fremantle.

The Eagles big man didn't return to the field after the second-quarter incident and the club is waiting on the results of scans to determine the severity of the injury.

Tuesday, 14 February 2017
Scott Lycett is a strong chance to play in round one after showing significant improvement from a knee operation in September last year.

"His volume has increased quite significantly over the past month. I'd forecast that he'd be playing some game minutes in the back half of the JLT Community Series," West Coast football manager Craig Vozzo said.

"Whether that's with the senior team or East Perth, I'm not sure. It will be dependent on how he ticks off each milestone over the next few weeks."

Wednesday, 30 November 2016
Scott Lycett's recovery from knee surgery will take much longer than first thought.

Lycett was originally set to be available for round one after undergoing a PCL reconstruction during the off-season.

But there's a chance Lycett won't be able to return until midway through next season, placing a huge strain on West Coast's ruck stocks.

"It's not really a hiccup. But when they're the size they are, it just takes a little bit longer," Eagles coach Adam Simpson said of Lycett's injury.

"We're hoping in the early part of the season (he can return).

"But we want to get it right. So barring any hiccups, we're thinking early to mid part of the season."

Friday, 16 September 2016
West Coast expects ruckman Scott Lycett to be available for round one next season despite going under the knife next week for surgery on his injured posterior cruciate ligament.
Thursday, 15 September 2016
Scott Lycett says a posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is possible following a consultation with Melbourne surgeon Julian Feller.

"I went to Melbourne yesterday with one of the physios from West Coast and consulted a knee surgeon over there and got a bit more of an idea of what we're going to do, but I think once the West Coast physio and doctors get together they'll know a bit more and have a plan from there," Lycett said.

Monday, 5 September 2016
Scott Lycett is set to play in Thursday night's elimination final against the Western Bulldogs despite carrying a posterior cruciate ligament injury in his left knee.

"He'll be in the side," West Coast coach Adam Simpson said.

"We'll give him every chance to play. He'll train. Barring any type of difficulties at training we think he'll play."

Thursday, 16 June 2016
Scott Lycett is dropped from the Eagles' senior side to face the Brisbane Lions for disciplinary reasons.

"We are very disappointed that Scott has let the club down, but the behaviours we ignore are the behaviours we accept," West Coast coach Adam Simpson said.

"We have standards and values that we expect of each other, and Scott, unfortunately, failed to meet them."

Simpson, however, would not elaborate on Lycett's indiscretion.

"I won't go into detail," he said.

"I'm not going to make too much of a song and dance about it. He's let us down. We move on this week and he'll play for East Perth (in the WAFL)."

Tuesday, 10 February 2015
Scott Lycett says the competition for a spot in the Eagles' starting 22 has driven him to his best pre-season to date.

"I think I've missed three drills all pre-season. Hopefully that can make me a better player going into the 2015 season," Lycett said.

"It's been a healthy competition. I think if I didn't have competition I wouldn't be a better player.

"I'm going to give my best to keep [Callum Sinclair] out of the side and hold that spot."

Monday, 18 August 2014
Scott Lycett resists the lure of a return to South Australia by signing a four-year contract extension with the Eagles.

"I have really enjoyed the opportunity to learn some of the finer points of ruck work from Nic (Naitanui) and Coxy," Lycett said.

"I have said that for a long time, that it has been a unique situation to learn from two of the game's best and I feel privileged to be in that position."

Friday, 18 July 2014
Eagles chief executive Trevor Nisbett says the club will not be trading Scott Lycett despite strong interest from Port Adelaide.

"We'll be keeping Scott Lycett," Nisbett said.

"We're very firm. Scott won't be going anywhere. He's a big part of our plans."

Friday, 27 June 2014
West Coast coach Adam Simpson says Scott Lycett is still an important member of the team despite being rested for this week's clash against Fremantle.

"We've got big plans for him and we want him as part of our club and he understands and hopefully I've explained it well enough," Simpson said.

"No one wants to sit aside. But he has played every week and his body needs to be managed just as much as the others.

"He's 21, so hopefully it's just a part of his apprenticeship."

Thursday, 26 June 2014
Port Adelaide is among a number of clubs circling out-of-contract West Coast ruckman Scott Lycett.
Wednesday, 28 May 2014
Brant Colledge has been cleared of serious facial damage after a sickening last-minute collision in the Foxtel Cup match with Norwood.

While the Royals advanced to the semi-finals with a dominant win, the focus fell on the clash between Colledge and his Eagles teammate Scott Lycett.

In the final minute of the contest, Colledge was running back with the flight of the ball as he ran deep inside the East Perth forward 50. Lycett was running the other way and launched at the ball, colliding with Colledge at full tilt.

Colledge was assisted from the ground and taken to hospital but was released after an examination.

Thursday, 28 June 2012
West Coast has extended the contracts of defender Sam Butler and ruckman Scott Lycett for another two years.

"I am very pleased and excited to be extending with the club for the next two years," Butler said.

"The club is poised to launch a serious premiership assault in the near future and it is great to have the opportunity to be a part of that."

Saturday, 30 July 2011
Scott Lycett makes his AFL debut for West Coast at Docklands Stadium with 11 disposals (4 kicks and 7 handballs), 2 marks, a tackle, 3 hitouts and 2 goals in an 8-point win over the Western Bulldogs.
Thursday, 25 November 2010
West Coast draftee Scott Lycett says he is looking forward to learning from new teammates Dean Cox and Nic Naitanui.

"It's been my dream to hopefully end up on an AFL list one day and I guess I'm one of those lucky kids. I'm just really happy to be here," Lycett said.

"I just wanted to get on an AFL list and hopefully prove myself to play an AFL game one day."
