Brad Boyd

Brad Boyd played his first game for Fitzroy in 1992. He was appointed Captain at the age of 23 in 1995 after Paul Roos transferred to Sydney. Throughout these troubled times he carried most of the weight on his shoulders. He won the Best and Fairest in 1995 and was runner up in 1994 and 1996. He won Victorian Selection in 1994-95. He played 70 games.

He transferred to the Brisbane Lions for season 1997 but had a disastrous season with injury and played only 20 mins of football for the season. He returned late in the 1998 season and played 6 games for a career total of 77*.  He showed that if injury free he would be a major force with the Lions. In 1999 he was still troubled by a back injury. He played only 8 games for a career total of 85 and retired at the start of 2000.

He was chosen by the Fitzroy Football Club as its star on the Fitzroy Centenary Maximum Card and Postcard. The maximum card is displayed below. The postcard is essentially the same except that the background is brighter and there is no postmark or stamp. A cover with the outline of the postcard was also released.
