Michael Doughty was one of Adelaide’s great success stories after initially being drafted as a rookie player in 1999. He was elevated to the senior list in 2000, and while he played just five games over his first two seasons, he was soon in the Club’s best-22.
A talented utility, Doughty was an integral part of Adelaide’s squad throughout the 2000s, finishing with 231 games to his name. He was best known for his ability to keep some of the competition’s best players quiet in defence or as a tagger, a role he excelled at until retirement.
His final season saw him play 24 games, hinting the 33-year-old could have continued past 2012. Doughty returned to country footy following his retirement, and is currently a player manager.
