AFL career[edit]

A former Under 19s player, Seow broke into the seniors in 1986 and played 14 games that year.[4] His season ended prematurely when he was suspended for striking Michael Pickering.[5] He appeared four times in 1987 and spent the following year in the United States, where he trialed as a wide receiver for the University of North Carolina.[3][4][6] When he returned to Australia, Melbourne secured his services via the 1989 Pre-season Draft.[7] He made seven appearances for Melbourne, five in 1988 and two in 1989.[4]

Sometime after his football career ended, Seow moved to Shanghai.[3]
