Lincoln McCarthy is a highly talented Midfielder/Forward that has elite skills and ability to hit the scoreboard. The Geelong Cats drafted McCarthy with the 66th pick in the 2011 AFL Draft after an impressive year for Glenelg in the SANFL.
McCarthy made his debut for the Cats in round 10, 2012 against GWS but a foot injury in that game ended his year prematurely. Unfortunately injuries continued to hamper McCarthys run at AFL level managing just the 29 games across 6 seasons. 2016 would be his most consistent year where he play 19 games and kick 19 goals.
Following the 2018 season McCarthy requested a trade to the Brisbane Lions which has proved to be a good move so far, booting
4 goals in their round one win over West Coast.
