Stuart Maxfield was inducted into the Swans Hall of Fame in 2011.
Having begun his AFL career at Richmond in 1990, Stuart Maxfield donned the red and white for the first time in 1996 and was instrumental in the team’s rise to Grand Finalists that year. A dashing and genuinely tough left-footed winger, he was named Captain of the Club in 2003, following the retirement of Paul Kelly. Under his captaincy, as he worked with coach Paul Roos, the “Bloods” culture flourished and ultimately led to the 2005 Premiership. Sadly, Stuart was not on the field on grand final day as a knee injury had ended his season – and would end his career – early in 2005. He played 200 games, kicked 87 goals, and had a profound and lasting influence on the Sydney Swans.
