Meet MATTHEW LLOYD @ Collins ABC Werribee
Venue: Collins ABC Werribee
Matthew Lloyd is destined to be remembered as one of the AFLs greatest full-forwards. This is his long awaited autobiography.
Matthew Lloyd at his peak was a goal kicking machine in an era where the power forward was fading from the game. A five-time all Australian, he topped the AFL goal kicking three times in his 270 game career and kicked the ton twice, his first in the Essendon Premiership season of 2000.
Matthew Lloyd Straight Shooter, is the story of a kid driven by a fear of failure to climb the highest peaks in football. Of a young footballer who taught himself a process to become the most accurate shot for goal in the AFL after a tirade from one his coaches. It is how a boy with natural ability became the captain of the Essendon Football Club, a premiership player and a life member of the AFL.
It is about the transformation into devoted father and a multi-media expert on AFL, when it looked like from the outside his career was cut short before its time; of a testy relationship with his final coach and the bone crunching hit that saw him finish his time as a player on suspension. It looks at how he considered a future with other clubs before deciding to retire on his terms.
Above all, it is a brutally honest account of an astonishing career from a man who is a straight shooter in more ways than one.
