Capable of bursts of brilliance - he once kicked five goals in a quarter against West Coast, for instance - Craig Devonport gave solid, if sometimes inconsistent, service to St Kilda in 94 League games between 1989 and 1995. He was a forward during his first three seasons, which is when his most of his career tally of 80 goals were registered, before moving to the backlines later on.

In the 1995 AFL Draft Devonport was traded to Carlton but he failed to ignite and after managing just a solitary appearance in 1996 he was de-listed.

After eighteen years out of football Craig Devonport was hired by Broadbeach as an assistant coach.
