Scott Burns

Collingwood has welcomed home one of its favourite sons with former captain Scott Burns joining the staff of senior coach Nathan Buckley for the 2014 season. Burns, who was an assistant coach with West Coast since retiring as a player in 2008, will be Buckley’s midfield coach.

Burns’ return reunites him with Buckley, with whom he shared 14 seasons in black and white. Together, they led the club on-field for a decade, with Burns succeeding Buckley as captain in 2008. They worked in centre square tandem, along with Paul Licuria, throughout the late nineties and much of the 2000s and were pivotal to the Grand Final campaigns of 2002 and 2003.

Burns played 265 games and kicked 149 goals across his 14 seasons with the Magpies, twice won the R.T. Rush Trophy for finishing second in the Copeland Trophy count and placed on several other occasions. He was inducted into the Collingwood Hall of Fame in 2012.
