After completing his schooling in Wagga Wagga, Lloyd moved to Sydney in 1984 and joined the Swans.[1] He won a reserves best and fairest in 1986 and made his senior debut in Sydney's round seven win over reigning premiers Hawthorn in the 1987 VFL season.[3][4] His nine appearances in 1988 would be the most he played in a single season and he ended his career with Sydney in 1991, after 22 games.[5]
