Matthew Lokan (2017)


  • Born: 20 November 1982
  • Height: 185 cm
  • Weight: 94 kg

Recruited from Port Adelaide in the SANFL, he was taken with pick 70 in the 2002 draft and won a Rising Star nomination in 2003 as he played every game, including Collingwood’s losing grand final to Brisbane Lions.

Best known for his dash off half back and long left-foot kicks into the forward line, he was used as a forward at times and he booted 20 AFL goals including 14 in 18 games in 2004.

After being delisted at the end of the 2005 season, Lokan returned to Alberton Oval to play for Port Adelaide in the SANFL.

He finished with 112 SANFL games for the Magpies and then spent two seasons as the playing coach of the Belconnen Magpies in the North East Australian Football League.

Following the termination of Nick Stevens' tenure, Lokan was appointed in January 2015 to coach Glenelg Football Club. He coached Glenelg between 2015 and 2017, finishing 9th (4 wins), 7th (6 wins) and 7th (8 wins).

Lokan then chose to take up an appointment at the end of 2017 as coach of the Port Adelaide Magpies on a three-year contract. Thus he came to Glenelg when there was short time to appoint a coach, and he left Glenelg leaving the club with a short time to appoint a coach. Luckily the incoming coach was Mark Stone: in a further twist of fate, Lokan was coach of the Port Adelaide Magpies side which lost the 2019 Grand Final to Stone's Glenelg side.
