Jump to navigation Jump to search

Dick Lee was the first player to kick 500 goals in the Victorian Football League (VFL), finishing with a total of 707 goals in a 230-game career at Collingwood

In the sport of Australian rules football, a goal is scored by kicking the football between the two middle goalposts at either end of the field and is worth six points. In the Australian Football League (AFL), the premier Australian rules football league, a total of 59 players have scored 500 goals or more in senior matches (not including pre-season, Night Series, interstate and exhibition matches). The overall leading goalscorer is Tony Lockett, who kicked a total of 1,360 goals in 281 games for the St Kilda Football Club and the Sydney Swans between 1983 and 2002. The first 1000-goal player was Gordon Coventry, also of Collingwood, whose record of 1299 career goals stood for 61 years until it was broken by Lockett in 1999.[1]
