Lynden Dunn (born 14 May 1987) is a professional Australian rules footballer playing for the Collingwood Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL). He previously played for the Melbourne Football Club from 2005 to 2016.
The young forward made significant progress in 2006, increasing his body size, and worked hard to break into the senior lineup for his debut in Round Six, a tightly fought victory over the Cats. Dunn played eleven games at senior level, kicking 13 goals and showed promising signs that he will be a player of the future for the Demons.
He worked hard on his body over the pre-season and after suffering a fractured cheekbone in the VFL, Dunn was able to return to the senior team in round 4, 2007, kicking three goals in a heavy loss to the Dockers. He played 12 games that season.
Dunn was embroiled in controversy in 2008 when he was reported twice within a minute for striking Brent Harvey - incidents for which he escaped from the tribunal with merely a reprimand.
In 2010 Dunn has switched from playing as a tagger to a defensive-forward and has kicked his most goals in a single season, including a career best five goals against Richmond at the MCG in Round 19.
In August 2017, Dunn joined Collingwood's Women's coaching team as an assistant coach.
