Matthew Lloyd

Following his retirement at the end of the 2009 season, former Essendon captain Matthew Lloyd joined Network Ten in 2009 as a full-time expert commentator.

Matthew achieved superstar status within the ranks of the AFL.

He won a premiership with Essendon in 2000, won the Coleman Medal on three separate occasions (2000, 2001 and 2003) kicked over 100 goals in a season twice (109 in 2000 and 105 in 2001), was selected to the All Australian team on five occasions (1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003) and played over 200 games.

He has also surpassed the legendary John Coleman in the number of goals kicked for Essendon and currently sits at eighth on the all time leading goal scorers list.

Matthew was the full forward for perhaps the greatest AFL team in history, the 2000 Essendon premiership team which lost only one game for the season and then went on to win the flag in emphatic style.

Matthew kicked 109 goals for that season. He is married to his childhood sweetheart, Lisa and they have a beautiful daughter, Jaeda who turned four in December 2009.

The triple Coleman Medallist and five-time All Australian captained the Bombers from 2006 to 2009.

Matthew joined Network Ten's football coverage as a guest panellist on One Week At A Time and following retirement moved into the expert commentator role with the Network Ten footy team.

2011, sees Mathew still part of the TEN commentary team and he joins Scott Cummings and Anthony Hudson on ONE’s premier panel show The Game Plan.
