Allan Lynch began his senior career at Launceston, but it was with Fitzroy that he established himself as a truly first rate performer. Tall and strong, he proved adept at virtually any position, although it was at either full back or in the ruck that he tended to be used most. He played a total of 106 VFL games for the Lions between 1959 and 1966.
