Scott Lycett (born 26 September 1992, in Ceduna, South Australia) is an Australian rules footballer currently playing for the West Coast Eagles in the Australian Football League (AFL).

Early career[edit]

Lycett played junior football for the Thevenard Magpies, playing one season in the team's senior side at the age of 15 before moving to Adelaide to play for Port Adelaide in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL).[1] He played six matches in Port Adelaide's reserve side and eight games in the team's under-18 side, kicking 18 goals, before making his senior SANFL debut in round 3 of the 2010 season, against West Adelaide.[2] Overall he played six senior matches for Port Adelaide in 2010. Lycett played both under-16 and under-18 football for South Australia,[3] playing five games at the AFL National Under 18 Championships, recording 87 hit-outs.[4]

West Coast Eagles career[edit]

Lycett was taken by the West Coast Eagles in the second round of the 2010 National Draft with pick #29. He was originally expected to be taken with pick #16 by Port Adelaide, but was overlooked by the club.[5]

Lycett made his pre-season debut for the club in round one of the 2011 NAB Cup against Hawthorn.[6]

He was assigned to Peel Thunder in the West Australian Football League (WAFL), making his debut in round 3 of the 2011 season against Claremont.[7] He played 15 consecutive games from round 3 to round 18, kicking 12 goals.

Lycett made his debut for the West Coast Eagles in round 19, 2011, after both Josh Kennedy and Nic Naitanui withdrew due to injury.[8] He kicked two goals on debut, include a goal with his first kick.

In an interesting footnote Lycett was born on the same day the West Coast Eagles won their first AFL Premiership on September 26, 1992.
